Facebook won't load - everything else will

  1. I use IE as my main browser. For the last 3 days FB will not load properly on my laptop. Everyother site is fine. The FB sign in page will load and when I login the top banner and footer loads but not the main frame. I've checked the LAN settings, DNS, cleared cache etc and cannot figure it out.

    The only thing I can think of that has changed is I installed Prezi desktop just before it happened. I dont think that would impact only FB though. I have since uninstalled it but no joy.

    Any ideas?

    I use Google Chrome or (Mozilla Firefox) and Facebook will not download. I have Windows 8 and I have reloaded Chrome, added Firefox, restarted my computer and FB still will not download. Help.
