Friend's Facebook Issues

Q: Friend's Facebook Issues

I have this friend who has been having trouble logging into Facebook on his PC.

He cannot even go to the site without the page being all white. He's tried all kinds of tricks and browsers and had other friends try to help with little success.

Anyone know what could be causing this and what he can do? I will try asking him to join here so he can tell you all this himself if needed. But I promised him I'd help any way possible.

Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm trying to add someone to my facebook page, but don't know how. She has written a message to me in a chat window, and there is her photo at the top of the chat window. I suspect a block of some sort, or a setting is causing the problem.

Can someone advise how I can add this person as a 'Friend'?

Thank you,
Robert
 

A:How can I enter someone as a friend on Facebook

You will need to go to their Facebook profile and select "Add Friend".

There is no option to add them as a friend within the chat window.

Hi. My friend's facebook account was hacked recently, it was a quite nasty attack by someone who clearly knows us personally. He was blocked out and regained access several times over the space of a month. Finally they got in and started posting malicious messages, changing details and mailing and chatting with people, pretending to be him. He has now deactivated his accounts. There was abuse posted that mentioned me and I'd like to find out who it was, the whole situation has left us all feeling suspicious of everyone we know because it was clearly a "real" mutual friend and I don't feel secure online anymore. Any help with ideas to identify the hacker or tips to make my own account safer would be very gratefully received. B.

The first call needs to be to the local police to file a report. You won't get personal information through any free technical means. You need both the support of law enforcement and Facebook.

Hello.

I have three questions. Why Facebook doesn't deliver my messages to people which are not my Facebook friends? I made my new account and even then some people didn't get it. Facebook became very unpleasant.

Do anyone know if is possible to send a lot friend requests without beeing blocked?

When Facebook block you when you add new friends? I know that block you when some number of them reject your friend request. But I don't know how much.

Thank you.

A:Messages and friend requests on Facebook

I don't think this is a networking topic but...  (well, social networking, but "networking" on here generally refers to technical stuff like home networks and such)
 
1. 
Some people have settings that wont allow you to message them.  And if
you're not friends with someone, you message can still go to them but it
will go to a folder labled "other".  People do not get notifications
from facebook telling them when they have messages in their "other"
folder.
 
2.  I don't know the numbers, but I'm sure a
few things factor in.  1, how many is a lot?  2, also depends on how
many people DENY your requests.  If many people delete your requests,
then facebook knows you're just randomly adding people for the sake of
adding people, and they don't like that.
 
3.  Again,
I don't have any idea what the number is.  My dad gets put in facebook
jail once in a while because he likes to add a lot of people just to be
friendly.

I do hope someone can help.

Yesterday a friend found that she had unwittingly picked up a virus by clicking into a bad link. She now has a message on her screen saying that Kapersky is scanning, but the scanning has gone on for hours and hours now and just tells her that a 'scan is in progress'. The message tells her that she can still access FB while the scanning is taking place, but she finds that she can't.

She sent me an attachment and asked me to click on 'help' on the attachment, but the 'help' option doesn't appear for me. I have reported it from my own Facebook page but Facebook rarely seems to respond to any requests for help these days. Can anyone on here suggest something she can try, please?

Last night I received a Facebook friend request from someone I don't know. I did not accept it but clicked on the name to check them out as I always do to see if I MAY know them. When I did it was pornographic pictures. I quickly left the profile but I could not get back to the home page to log off. I tried from my iphone, ipad and finally my home computer. I did manage to log off from the home computer. Today, the friend request has vanished and I changed my password. I have run Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials scans and both say clear. However, I keep getting the busy "circle" on my home computer next to the mouse arrow. It comes on and off continuously like something is running in the background. I don't know what to do but I want to make sure my computer is really clean. Please tell me what to do. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

A:Facebook not friendly friend request!

I would be more concerned about the security of your Facebook account than a virus to be honest with you. Report the suspicious activity to FB admins to ensure that no one is hijacking your account.

I have had a couple shady encounters with FB, more and more these days, You were smart to change your password, I would change the passwords of any linked accounts. Such as Emails that you use with FB. (just to be sure!)

Good Luck!

Hi, I recently got suckered into receiving and falling for the 'fake facebook friend request' malware email (hxxttp://www.net-security.org/malware_news.php?id=1813) and am not sure if I have been infected or not. In the email, I clicked on the link and it brought me to facebook but nothing seemed amiss - however I realized immediately after that it was probably some sort of virus and that, wow, I really am guillible to fall for something like that. In researching about the malware I noticed that a prompt was expected to come up and ask me to download the latest version of Macromedia Flash - but it didn't. So I am uncertain if I've contracted something. Anyway, I haven't noticed any major issues with my computer but I will admit that I'm a little green when it comes to these things so I'm unsure of what to look for - if it's something dangerous running in the backround, how would I know, etc.? So I followed the instructions on here and have a few logs. Problem is I don't really understand the language, so to say. What's good or bad. Really I am wondering if someone can take a peek at the logs and tell me if I have a real issue and if it's something I need to address. I'm wary of using this computer in case it's something serious.

Oh, and my computer is running Windows Vista.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

My computer has been acting very strange lately, and it's never done this before since I received it a couple of years ago. I had a party for my birthday (which is today) last night, and my friend wanted to check her messages on Facebook on my computer. I allowed her to do that, and at first she had trouble logging on to Facebook because my Firefox browser was set to ask me every time a site wishes to set a cookie on my computer. I clicked "Allow for session" on all of the cookies, and then I had to set NoScript (a Firefox add-on that disables scripts on websites) to Temporarily Allow facebook.com. She checked her messages and then exited out, but my computer was never the same after that. It has become extremely slow and unresponsive, and has frozen at least twice. Right before the second time it froze, I was trying to scan my computer with Ad-Aware, and I saw that while it was scanning, it had found 1 infection. Also, any sound that is played (for example, the sound that is played when you receive an error message) crackles and echoes several times before stopping. Any music that I play will skip, no matter what player I play it on. My cursor also has problems in that when I move it, it blinks and sometimes dissapears then reappears where I moved it. I decided to get help here, since I couldn't get anything that used too much memory to work. Is there anything I can do to find whatever infected my computer and fix it?

(Unfortunately, she doesn't live near me, so I don't have personal hands-on access to her computer, but I can pass on any suggestions/solutions.)

First you need to unzip (extract) Hijack This and move it to a permanent folder. It will not function properly when run from the zip folder or the Temp folder.

You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Right click on the HijackThis.zip file and choose "Extract all" and extract it to the Hijack This folder you created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

What he said:

"Alright well I'm not very computer savy (although over the past couple years I've learned a lot of stuff but this has been my dilemma as of late.

My internet has been relatively slow lately. I have a d-link router since 2010 and we have a Motorola Surfboard modem. I noticed over the past few months it's slow to respond and doesn't get a great connection (it's older than the router keep in mind). Anyway we have a new modem (it's about a year old because it's been chilling in the box) and I decided that it's time to set it up. My upload speeds have been terrible lately (about a 4 to usually a 9 or 10) so I gave it a go.

30 minutes later and nothing. I unplugged my old modem, the cable to the cable source, and the ethernet to the router. Being that is an identical modem, I used the original power source from the 1st modem, the original cable to the cable source, and the same ethernet from the router and nothing happens.

It says my strength is excellent, it says I'm connected to the router, but I'm just not connected to the internet. It says it's a DNS error but I don't see what could be messing that up.

I reset my router and modem several times and nothing.

My Windows computers won't connect, my MacBook won't connect, my iPhone won't connect, etc. I gave up and just put my old [deleted by mod] modem back and I'm frustrated.

Any tips? "

Thanks.

Any tips?Click to expand...

Yeah, please don't make me waste time editing your potty mouth.

It's not real bright to use an old power supply with a new modem (or other electronic device) if the new and matching power supply is available.

Almost all ISPs require that the modem be registered with them. The last time I replaced my modem I could not get a connection for about half an hour after registering the new one. Maybe the registration was not done, or maybe the wait for it to take effect was too short.

A friend of mine, who is an dear older lady, always comes to me for computer help, but this one has me totally stumped. She has an HP Pavilion Slimline with a built-in SD card reader. She didn't know anything about the "Safely Remove Hardware" option and so has just been putting the card in and taking it out. I believe what has happened to her is that she once pulled the card out when it was still working with a program. Now, when she sticks the SD card in, the green light comes on, but the computer does not recognize anything being in the device. I went to the Safely Remove Hardware screen and the device is showing up in there, but if you click to "Stop" it, an error message comes up advising that this device is already in use, even though it is not. So, where could the hang up be? How can we find it and release this device so that she can use her card again? We have tried reboots, we have tried to just go to the device, but it doesn't show up as "in use" anywhere but in that Safely Remove Hardware screen. I also checked in the Device Manager and this device is shown as working fine, no errors. Help!!! Thanks!
 

A:Friend having SD memory card reader issues

If the card was accessed while removed, it's highly probable it got corrupted in the process. Safely Remove Hardware isn't really needed, unless you do just what happened or some malware accesses the card when you remove it... Like Vista.
Anyways. If you don't have a memory card reader, get one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...e=kingston_card_reader-_-20-134-753-_-Product and test if the card works in other systems. (Try finding a way to format it, if all else fails) If not, the card itself is now officially dead.

I've been having issues with Facebook. Have been unable to locate the 'Recent Posts By Others' button on any of the community pages where I post. It only shows the 'Post on Timeline' area of said pages. Which is all well & good, however, the only posts that show are the ones posted by those who manage the pages. I am unable to see anything I post unless I access my content through the links in my Activity Log. Wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this problem, & if there's a way to remedy the situation. I can't find any info in the Facebook Help content, so I'm hoping someone may have a suggestion here. Any & all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Note: You will need to post complete details of your configuration and your specific issue in this new thread for us to help you.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Hello everyone, I am new here and am having difficulty finding where to direct my question. I am hopping that someone here will be able to help me with this issue I am having with Facebook or atleast direct me to the correct forum

I can log into my Facebook page without any type of issue. My email address and password are still active, however, logging in is the ONLY thing that I am able to do. I am unable to accept new friends, add or delete applications, reply to messages, etc., etc. I have tried emailing Facebook directly but there site is not set up well for directing issues to someone at Facebook for Tech support. I am wondering if anyone here has run into this same issue and would know what is causing me to get 'page errors'/unable to make changes to my Facebook site. I have been working on this issue for a couple days now to no avail and am at the point of deleting the account all together and re-creating one..however, since I cannot make any changes at all to my Facebook site, I doubt I will be able to even do that !

Any advice, tips and/or tricks are appreciated,

TIA, Realitybytes

Hi guys. How do I remove the left column "Like"-bar?

I've even unliked the sites that are out there but they are still featured out there. Does anyone knows how to do? I've tried to browse the "Edit" section without luck, I know it's possible since one of my friends've removed his.

I've attached an URL with an image which shows what I mean. :-) Thanks!

I cannot get this resolved anywhere and Facebook Help is a complete joke, when you send a ticket you don't get an answer...I cannot get my timeline to load. Sometimes I will be scrolling away and see 20+ posts then all the sudden it goes to a blank post and no further. So I refresh and then I might see 2-5 and it keeps doing it. I have cleared cache, temp files, my Chrome is up to date, I am beyond frustrated!!

Does it only happen in Chrome, or does it happen in other browsers?

Hello, I am using Vista on my laptop and use Internet Explorer to browse the internet. I was able to view Facebook correctly, but suddenly am not able to view it.

Just doesn't load correctly and at the bottom left I get a little message that says "error on page". I have installed the latest version of JAVA on my computer.

Try to use a different web browser other than your usual one and post the result. The intention is to find out if it's just a problem with one particular web browser, which will obviously help in tracing the cause.

Hi all,

For some reason, my browser (Chrome) cannot access the facebook website. I've tried using other browsers but am still unable to use facebook. However, I am able to access every other website except for facebook. I've tried using a proxy to access the website and I was able to do it but when I switch the proxy off, I'm back to square one.

I've tried going to the website on another PC with the same WiFi network and it works. I believe the problem lies with my computer itself. Is there any way to solve this problem?

I'm using a HP Pavilion dm3 Notebook PC that runs on Windows 7.

Thanks and regards

I have been using waterfox actually but, it is essentially firefox. 
Yesterday morning everything was working normally...  I went out bird watching with my oldest daughter... when I came back(my computer stays signed off, nobody messed with it) I was having trouble with facebook.  All the pages were having trouble loading.  Some I'd have to refresh over and over and they'd just sit there.  I was able to do some things but it took a long time.  VERY VERY laggy...  Like, I was ready to pull my hair out.
It was only facebook... no other sites were giving me trouble.
Today I tried IE and just navigated all the pages I could while not logged in.  NO problems.  Pages loaded normally.  So I went to firefox instead of waterfox and, still the same issue.
I started to go through some of my addons, disabling them.(shouldn't really have to for ONE website).  I don't know what happened, what changed yesterday that would cause this but, with firefox and waterfox, facebook is still not loading properly for me.
I wonder if I can view info on any addon updates or anything else that may have occurred when I went back online yesterday afternoon.  I mean, something, somewhere had to change right?
I am not going to use IE...  and for those ready to suggest it, I will not use Chrome either. 
I'm scratching my head wondering what happened.....   I don't understand how all these other sites are working just fine and fac... Read more

A:firefox facebook issues...

May know the culprit... or at least, can narrow it down for anyone that might have thoughts... anyone?
So, I'll restate......
Facebook wont load half the time and when it does, it hangs and doesn't load completely...
This happens for firefox and waterfox, but didn't seem to happen in IE... 
Checked this afternoon and this was on my computer as well as a laptop in the house...
Well, that laptop is with my wife in another town right now and, while I'm still having the facebook issues, she is not. 
So...  Just firefox browsers, just this house, just facebook......... ODD... 
What I'm about to explain and suggest wouldn't make sense to me unless it was IE as well.......  but, here it goes...
Not too long ago, I switched the DNS that my router was using.  I had been having intermittent trouble with ONE particular facebook game.  It was decided that my ISPs DNS was causing the problem with the servers for that facebook game.  I switched the DNS settings to use Comodo's...  (someone suggested google's but, I do NOT trust google... ha)
Anyway... switching the DNS to comodo's settings fixed the game errors immediately and I've had no issues with it since...  (well, except for when I try to visit a local news station, comodo's dns thing would say that news site was linked to yadda yadda yadda, and I had to make temporary exceptions... )
Anyway.....
Could this be a DNS issue?  I mean, Both computers had the issue here but now that o... Read more

Every time I try and get onto Myspace or Facebook i receive an error message 'Internet Explorer has stopped working' or 'Experienced a problem'.

Each time it checks for a solution, however one never arrives, it simply re-starts.

This only happens on these two sites, it allows me onto the homepage but no further than that.

I am using IE7 and Vista Home Premium x64.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
