I was having trouble for a few weeks, trying to get Facebook to load correctly on my new computer (running Win7, using all browsers). Most of the time, I wouldn't be able to load Facebook, and it only seemed to be an issue with that particular site, no other.
I ended up scanning my computer with Malwarebytes, looked over a HijackThis! log, used ComboFix, etc...and still, nothing.EDIT: Don't run ComboFix unless instructed by a computer technician, and deleting items using HijackThis! can also make your computer unstable.
Well, finally, I moved on from that and looked at the network card, and I decided to uninstall the driver and download the latest version. To my surprise, it actually worked.
I noticed this issue was brought up here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic461586.html
) and many other places, both on this site AND using a Google search, so I think it would be of great help to mention that a driver update for your network card may do the trick. My card is listed as Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
, and a quick download is available at their site (http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
). Using the Update Driver option (through Windows) does not work, as it continues to read your 2011 driver as the most current.
Once you do this, you can open up a command prompt window and flush your DNS, reset TCP IP stacks and WINSOCK entries by using the following commands:ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
netsh winsock reset catalog
I hope this is valuable information to anyone running into this issue. I know this has been a thorn in my side for a few weeks now, and I couldn't figure out why Facebook wasn't loading correctly. I'm assuming there are other sites that were troublesome, but it was those that I never visit, and it only makes sense that most headbutting this issue would have Facebook in common, since a vast majority of us use it.
