I am unable to access Facebook from home computer. I can from any other computer. I was told it was an Internet Explorer problem and to download Mozilla, so I did that and got access for 2 days and then had same issue as IE. I get error message that server cannot be found.
I have looked at a lot of threads on this and done the recommended "fixes" but have not had success. I am not a techy person and need help as a very new computer person.
Can you help me get access to FB back? :confused:

There are many causes. We get quite a number of new members with the same problem. Facebook is no different than any other site, but it's probably the most visited in the world.

If you have read through all those threads and cannot find one solution, I'm afraid I can't do anything more.

Maybe some other member would care to try?

this is from hosts:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

When malware is not involved, most of the time a router is the probable cause.
