I attempt to log onto Facebook from one computer and get the following:
 
Your Computer Needs to Be Cleaned

1U2ftI0b2hV.png   It looks like your computer is being affected by malware. We’ll help you fix the problem to keep your account secure and prevent malware from spreading to friends.     Malware is software that tries to steal personal information and causes problems when you use Facebook. Clicking or sharing links that contain spam can give your computer malware.

 

Followed by a button to "get started" which I have left strictly alone.

 

I can log in fine from other computers.

 

I've run Malwarebytes anti-malware which found no issues and scanned with Avast Free antivirus which also reported nothing.

It's a legit warning from Facebook... see this thread.

Once you downloaded the removal tool and let it run, Facebook will let you back in.

Okay, so I went in to try to correct the problem and suddenly it just let me in.

 

Wierd thing was earlier this morning the problem was still there.  Then, on seeing the above and checking the other thread, I decided to move head only...no warning.  I hadn't done anything; it just went away.

Facebook is kinda iffy with this warning. I never got infected myself so I never had it though.
