Facebook does not load

  1. When I try to go to facebook on Google Chrome, it says "Oops, this link appears to be broken". I've tried with IE8, Firefox and Opera but none of them work!! They all say something like "webpage cannot be displayed", but I've tried on my friend's laptop and it works fine (I'm using Windows 7). I've tried emptying the cache and deleting cookies but nothing seems to be working!

    oops i forgot something

    I've used a proxy avoidance like https://dtunnel.com and it seems to work fine on those, but a lot of facebook features do not work on the proxy avoidance servers.

    Kevin, you have posted in the virus and malware removal forum. Please go to the windows OS forum and report the problem there.

    If you think that the block on the Facebook link might be caused by malware, please follow the steps HERE.
    When finished, attach all 3 logs for review.

    Before you do that, please see if you can access the Facebook link directly by typing the URL in the Address Bar. If you can access that way, they you should check your browser settings.
