    I'm having a problem loading facebook.com. It won't load in any browser. Here's what I've done to try to remedy it...
    cleared history, cookies and cache
    uninstalled and re-installed chrome
    installed Firefox, but it doesn't work on that either
    flushed DNS
    disabled virus protection just long enough to log on
    pinged facebook.com from CMD and it pings successfully
    logging into facebook with https, which browsers seem to do automatically
    adding facebook as a trusted site
    restoring to a previous date

    Sometimes it will load fine but then 2 clicks later it crashes. This is the only site I'm having an issue with and it's happening on Chrome, IE and Firefox.
    I'm running windows 7 64 on a new system that I just bought in March. Also running ESET virus protection.

    I'm going insane to trying to fix the issue. It's been like this ever since the beginning of July.

    Try updating your network adapter driver.

    How does one do that? Why would a network adapter problem single out Facebook only? That is the only website that I'm having an issue with. I can bring up any other site.

    Do you have a router?

    My cable modem is also a router. I'm connected by Ethernet cable to my modem. I have another computer connected to the modem the same way and it gets Facebook fine.

    Phantom, so far, so good. I'm going to give it a few more days to make sure. But, I do believe the issue is solved. I didn't have an FB connection problem at all today. Thank you so much for your help!!
    Thanks Couriant for your responses as well. It's much appreciated.

    Okay, it's been almost a month now and I don't have any issues with FB like I did before.
    Phantom, thank you so much for your help!
