    I can't login to my facebook account , the internet exployer says that this web page cannot be accessed


    Facebook has become an integral part of many people's daily lives by keeping them connected to friends and family, which can make not being able to get on the site quite frustrating. Facebook does experience occasional downtime and other issues, but if you're consistently having problems accessing it, a browsing filter, firewall or outdated software could be the culprit.

    Browser Requirements:

    You may have problems accessing Facebook if you haven't upgraded your Internet browser in awhile. As of 2011, Facebook recommends using Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3 or Safari 4 for the best user experience. Updates to these browsers are free and can be found at the companies' websites. Some older computers may not be able to run the latest browser version and, therefore, have trouble displaying Facebook and other sites correctly.

    Home Blocks:
    Home computers also have tools to block certain websites; parents often install them to keep kids' Web activity under control. If this is your situation, you will have to talk to Mom and Dad about unblocking Facebook for you. If you have a PC with multiple user accounts, the "admin" is often the only account with permission to install or uninstall filtering software and extensions; you'll need to be logged into this account to change a filter's settings
    .
    Firewalls:

    Many computers and their antivirus programs now enable firewalls by default. Firewalls help protect your computer from malicious viruses and software, but sometimes they block access to sites you legitimately want to access. If you suspect your firewall is limiting your Facebook access, check the settings in Windows' Control Panel or in the program that enables the firewall, such as your antivirus software or wireless router software. Making the settings more permissible could solve the problem.

    I hope you find it very helpful.

    I cant get into facebook and numerous other sites becauce [site restricted banner apears ],,,, i use bullguard, and they cant fix this either ..please help,


    Disable Bullguard and try again. Either open the settings and Disable the Bullguard Firewall OR uninstall it. Third party firewalls are always blocking legitimate access. Use only Windows Firewall. OR add the sites that you want access to into the allowed list on the firewall.

    you may have a firewall that is blocking. If you have recently installed any antivirus programs, they sometimes come with firewalls that block certain programs from accessing the internet. Just adjust your firewall setting or remove your firewall entirely. although I don't recommend you turning off your firewall as it is your first line of defense when on the internet.
