Try adding these to your trusted sites in IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security - Trusted Sites.https://www.facebook.com/http://www.facebook.com/
What antivirus/antispyware/security product do you have on machine? Include any you have EVER has on this
machines including those you uninstalled (they leave remnants behind which can cause strange issues).
If no joy something maybe blocking it.
Start - All Programs - Accessores - System Tools - IE with no Addons - does this work better?
IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - click Restore then click Reset - Apply / OK
IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security Tab - click reset all zones to default - Apply / OK
Close and restart IE and/or IE with no addons
IE - Tools - Manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, this is no longer needed but Java still installs it
and it causes issues - you ever update Java go back in and disable it again.) Look for other possible problems.
Windows Defender - Tools - Software Explorer - look for issues with programs that do not look right. Permitted
are usually OK and "not permitted" are not always bad. If in doubt about a program ask about it here.
Could be a BHO - BHOremover - Free - standalone program, needs no install, download and run - not all
are bad however some can cause your issue (Toolbars are BHO's)
