Lately I have started having things happening especially when it comes to facebook.

A lot of the games won't start or have other problems like it will not share info to my fellow players, or certain parts of the game won't load.

When I am at newspapers or blogs that is using facebooks chat system, the chat does not show.


I also have problems with other web based applications. like Omnovia chat hanging every now and then also appearing lately.

Bit.ly won't load the target webpages.


I have contacted facebook support close to a week ago now, with no reply, or that the problem has gone away.


I have tried a different browser, and that did not help

I have updated Flash it did not help.

I tried surfing incognito on Chrome it did not help.

I have run scans with MBAM and Avira that did not help

I tried to turn off firewalls that did not help.


I have to note that when I was gonna run MBAM it was acting strange. I did not find the icon on my desktop, so my only option was to run it through chameleon.

It was not able to update through the automatic update (could not reach the server). So I uninstalled it and downloaded the updated version, and then it was able to

automaticly update.


operating system Win 8

browser                Chrome & IE 11

firewall                  Comodo

Speed                   35 Mbit up&down

Something is preventing data from reaching to your computer, Most likely its a virus, try install avast free anti-virus and scan your computer

I think I have solved my own problem:


This is what I did:

I ran Adwcleaner, and cleaned what it found on my computer (I have the log if you want me to post it).

After that the facebook games worked. But after a while there was like an icon looking like part of the comodo firewall app that was running.

So I decided to uninstall Comodo Firewall and remove as much of what was left of it on my computer and also remove it's services from my registry,

And then download a new install of it,and install it.

The installer reported and error during installation , but it seems Comodo is working as it should., and my problems is gone.


I hope this can help someone in the future.
