    Here's my situation:

    I cannot access the website facebook.com with any browser on my computer. I can however access login.facebook.com, university.facebook.com etc... as well as any other web page in the world. Any browser that I use will have this problem. It is not the internet provider because I have had 2 (in 2 different countries) and the problem persists.

    I never had this problem before, but started to notice this after I installed a free firewall around 6 months ago. (yeah dumb mistake on my part) I uninstalled it after a day and luckily there were no viruses.

    It seems to me that the firewall didn't completely uninstall correctly and something is left over that prevents me from ever going on the site.

    Tried reverting registry to a previous saved copy but to no avail.
    There are also no additional exe's that im aware of that might belong to the firewall running.

    so basically:
    This problem is localized on my computer and is independent of browsers and isps. I can use facebook, but anytime when I am redirected to the main directory facebook.com/...., it will show "this page cannot be loaded". I do not have any viruses or malware whatsoever and keep my system clean. Also it's been 6 months and if it were a virus, then it sucks.

    please help, this problem is driving me nuts! if you use facebook, then you'd know that this means I can't add any apps and lose certain key functionality with the site.

    *ps i know this isn't a life threatening issue, but ive never seen a problem like this in my life and its getting on my nerves.

    Have you tried getting it through a proxy?
