It's not actually in your facebook, it's in your Explorer, get rid some pop-ups toolbar that are initiate to run that virus not even in your facebook but to your another web page. I encounter like this and just clear all the browsing & cookies history.

Download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This anti-virus program will lay a S-M-A-C-K on that virus, that other programs won't touch!

Including the high priced paid for versions!

There is a paid for version of Malwarebytes. This version runs in real time. That means as soon as you turn your computer on, it goes to work.
With the free version you have to manually start the program. Do this on a regular basis.

The free version is all you need, plus I won't advertise for anybody. If it isn't truly free, and doesn't work well, you won't hear about it from me.

This is information about Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on Wikipedia,

This is the download site for the free version of Malwarebytes,

If you do not have your downloads set to be saved to your My Documents folder,
(Start>My Documents), this will go to your desktop screen. In either case, double-click on the file name. Now follow the installation instructions.

Before you run Malwarebytes for the first time, I advise this.
Turn off System Restore temporarily. System Restore will have the virus saved also. Turning it off until you run Malwarebytes, then turning it back on after you run Malwarebytes, will prevent that.

Click on Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Then click on System Restore, at the far top left corner of the window.
In the System Restore window you will see - System Restore Settings, towards the bottom of the left side- underlined. Click on it.

System Properties window will come up. Go down to - Turn off system restore on all drives, and Left-click in the square box to the left of it. Now go below, and click on Apply. Then go over and click on OK.

Now run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. When Malwarebytes is finished, go back to the System Restore Properties window, and turn System Restore back on.
Don't forget to go down, and click on Apply, and OK again.

You also need to create a Restore Point. Now that the virus is gone, you will have a point in time to go back to.

Click on System Restore again. This time go to the right side, and click on the small circle to the left of - Create a restore point. Go below, and click on Next.
Follow the simple instructions.

If you have problems come back, and post them.

Get rid of virus on Facebook page?

There is no such thing as a virus on Facebook page. If you have a Virus, its on your harddrive, either embeded in your operating system, or browser or both.
You will need to run a program like Advanced System Care, which is what I use or may even have to set your computer back a few days. Before the problem started. You will lose whatever information from that point on though.
Depending on what OS you are running, you may be able to use a free program.
The options are limitless.
