Are you a Facebook user?

Could be from a plug-in, cookie or toolbar....


Can you elaborate more on what effect is caused by it...what drew your attention to it?

I think the s-static.ak.fb is a content delivery network used by Facebook. I had issues with this long ago, and it almost completely stopped me from accessing Facebook. I resolved it with this method...


Use your browser to go to http://ping.eu/ping/ and type in the s-static.ak.fb into the box, hitting the 'go' button.

It will come back with a list near the top that looks something like this:


64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=55 time=37.0 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=55 time=37.0 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=55 time=37.0 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=55 time=37.7 ms


The is the IP address you want to copy for the next step.


Go to My Computer > Windows > System32 > Drivers > etc

Find the file named Hosts, and open it with notepad.

At the bottom of this file, add a new line with the IP you copied, followed by the s-static.ak.fb so that it looks like this: (just remember, the ip address you get may be different to the one used in this example)


# s-static.ak.fb


Now save the file, and refresh or reload the page that's causing the issue (which again, I'm guessing is facebook). Please let me know the results.
