I just bought this new computer, and so far it runs great, except that I'm having to learn how to operate windows 7. All the web sites I visit run fine, except when I try to login to my Facebook account, it freezes up and I have to shut everything down. Is there anyways someone can help me with this? I don't understand why I only have problems with the one site. Thanks a bunch!

Read "How can I disable a browser add-on?"


I suggest installing Firefox or even Opera as an alternative web browser. When launching Firefox, you can choose Safe Mode, which should allow you to use Facebook once again.

Another option you have is to get Safari. I am a pc user, and this is a apple product, but it is a wonderful browser. I use it both on my new windows 7 computer, and my older xp computer. It works almost flawlessly on both, and can be downloaded at www.apple.com/downloads.

One way is to disable all of them. If necessary, add one of them back at a time until the problem reoccurs. You should probably close and reopen IE8 after each add-on change, then see if the problem with Facebook has been corrected.
