Question about Facebook Social Network

How can I "unfreeze" facebook?

I'm the administrator on my desktop computer running Vista, my boyfriend also uses this computer. We haven't been able to load the fb login page for about a month. I tried many browsers but kept getting a box that would ask if I wanted to kill the page or wait... waiting would only result in getting that box again. I FINALLY was able to get fb to load using search.com on IE. HOWEVER, it turns out my boyfriend has been logged in to fb all this time on my computer, but the page is FROZEN. The tabs aren't highighted (the page on' fully load) and if I click on anything I get a message saying that fb is not responding. I haven't found any other browser that will even get that far.

The best thing you need to do first is a SYSTEM RESTORE..
Restore your system in the date that you dont have those kind of problems...

Time Required: Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows Vista usually takes several minutes
Here's How:

  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs ->Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.Note: The default choice is Recommended restore. This restore point is probably the most recent automatically created one and is likely the best choice. However, for purposes of demonstrating the entire System Restore process in Windows Vista, I'll be continuing with the longer process of choosing a restore point manually.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use.
    Note: Check the Show restore points older than 5 days checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
    Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows Vista created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows Vista changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows Vista will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before proceeding.
    Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
  7. Click Yes to the Are you sure you want to continue?dialog box.
  8. System Restore will now restore Windows Vista to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
    Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
  9. Immediately after logging in after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
  10. Click Close.
  11. Check to see if whatever Windows Vista problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
    If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
    If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.
Hope this helps you

    by the way,, check your time and date if it is in the right time... if your system time and date are incorrect you must set it first and try to browse,,

  • christian polido Jun 10, 2014

    and system restore doesn't change or delete anything that you have saved on your computer,, system restore will only affect SETTINGS..

Hi Carrie, I understand the problem you are facing. First please install and run the Ccleaner software which clears the temporary files and cleans the unnecessary registry files which is making your PC slow.
CCleaner 4 09 4471

Then install the Defraggler utility which will defrags the Windows file system and makes your PC work like new!
Defraggler 2 18 945

I personally recommend you to install the latest Mozilla Firefox browser for safe browsing. (Uninstall or upgrade firefox if you have already installed it.)
Download Firefox Free Web Browser

Finally restart the computer and enjoy surfing the Web or Facebook.

    CC Cleaner Doesn't clean registry if you dont buy the full software,, Defrag apps is present on any windows version you dont have to download any defrag tools.. I Much more recommend GOOGLE CHROME for Browser for less lag and less work on maintenance,,

  • Shankar R Jun 12, 2014

    christian polido, CCleaner can clean the Registry in the free version too! Windows Defragmentor is very slow that's why i recommend Defraggler which also has autoshutdown option after defrag completes! Firefox Rocks! :)

Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera. Try the one in that list that you haven't used before. I suspect that some of the browsers you're using might not be compatible with Vista hence why they keep freezing up. Remember, most web sites are tested using the latest version of a certain browser for a certain operating system. If you have one of the other that isn't the most current version then you will experience problems like you are having. See if you can download an older version of an OS, like IE 7 to see if the issue still arises.

Have your boyfriend try accessing his FB account on a different computer, using Firefox or Chrome. If that still doesn't work,
try accessing the account on a computer running Linux.

    Call and i can fix this?????

  • christian polido Jun 10, 2014

    I don't agree with this kind of solution,, allowing someone to REMOTELY CONTROL your computer is like giving them ALL your Hidden or Important files.. or sometimes they are just practicing how to repair on a computer software using remote connection and putting the risk on you not on their own...

Sounds like you could indeed have a virus.

Try downloading the following program: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button, Installing it, running a scan, then restarting your computer to see if this helps. Hopefully this will pick up any infections and remove them. Let us know how you get on :)

How do i install the drivers for C D digital microscope into Vista?


1. For Vista OS DinoCapture program required to set "Run as Administrator"
If you have any such problems, it is related to your Vista authorization issue.
Solution A:
Right Click DinoCapture icon that is on the Desktop > select "Properties" > click on "Compatibility" tab > Check the box to Run this program as Administrator -> Select Apply and OK -> Run DinoCapture.

Solution B:
When you run DinoCapture program for the first time, please don't double click on the DinoCapture icon.
Instead, right click on the DinoCapture icon, then the optional manual will pop up and you should select
"Run as administrator" Then confirm OK, the program will start to run.
This is a one time process only, after that your computer will recognize that Run DinoCapture is authorized by the administrator. You will be able to double click DinoCapture for future use.
If required to set "Run as Administrator" each time you start DinoCapture, please use solution A.

Purchased 123copy dvd09. getting burn engine error. Unable to burn DVD, unable to access the Video_TS.ifo.


Make sure that you are running the program under Administrator rights - especially if you are using Vista. On vista, in the start menu, right click the 123copy program and select "Run as Administrator". If you still get your error after this, try restarting your computer. If still nothing, then re-install the 123copy software.

Best of luck

Delete folder


Hi muraripcs,
 
Logon as Administrator and delete the protected folder.
 
You logon as Administrator like this:
Open the command prompt with Administrative privileges by opening the Start Menu, and typing cmd in the search box, and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter
Type the following in the command prompt:
net user administrator /active:yes
Press Enter
Restart your computer and logon as Administrator.
Note: You might want to set a password for the administrator’s account for at least a little protection.
Warning: Running as Administrator in Windows Vista bypasses all security and is NOT recommended. 
If you decide to use the Administrator account don’t complain when you start having problems :-).
