  1. I defraggled my computer a couple days ago and ever since Facebook will not load. It will start to, but will freeze to where I can't scroll or click on anything. Eventually a pop up shows saying "Facebook is not responding. Would you like to Kill or wait?" What will fix this? ((There is no proxy set so I know that's not the problem))

    I started having this issue and I tried just about everything, then my girlfriend Googled "Facebook not responding" and found this page: https://www.facebook.com/about/login/
    I was able to get myself logged on everything is working fine. If you are using a saved favorite or shortcut delete it, delete your temp files and cookies, restart your browser, and copy the URL https://www.facebook.com/about/login/ into your browser and logon.

    That may help some, but possibly not all. But thanks. :)
