Hi,
I can access any webpage with the exception of Facebook. When I enter the web address, it comes up with 'internet explorer cannot display the webpage' Facebook was on my favourites bar, but following advice, I've emptied my cache and tried again, with no joy. I did manage to get in via a convoluted way via Bing, but my photos were missing and as soon as I tried to go to the 'scrabble' link, it popped up with the Internet Exporer error message again.
This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:
  • Internet connectivity has been lost.
  • The website is temporarily unavailable.
  • The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
  • The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
  • There might be a typing error in the address.
  • If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.
I've checked all of the above but no joy.
Any help, much appreciated, thanks

Yes, I'm wireless. I don't think there is any problem with the router, as I can access everything else.

Look inside the router settings if Facebook might be blocked. Sometimes, resetting the router will fix this type of problem. I see this almost exclusively with routers.
