Question about Facebook Social Network
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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!

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.

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.

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 :)

Have you ever logged in correctly?
If so, try deleting the browser cache. In Internet Explorer go to tools, internet options, and click on "delete" in history. In firefox press [shift]+[ctrl]+[del].
