Windows 7: A very odd browsing problem...

A very odd browsing problem...

Hello,

This is my first post in these forums... please be nice.

Ok, I have a really odd problem which is driving me mad. Whenever I try to access facebook.com it looks as if the page is loading (i.e I get the loading wheel in the top left corner of the tab), but the page stays blank. Not odd in itself, but whenever i disconnect from the internet the page partially loads. I get the basic background and menus, but most of the pictures don't load, and the tabs at the top (facebook home button, message tab, notifications etc) don't show either. I don't have this for any other website that I use, just Facebook. I really would love to know what is causing this.

I use Chrome most of the time, but I tried IE to see if that would load it, and it did the first time, then the same thing happens... Really annoying.
I'm using a USB modem but I don't see why that would affect it.

I don't know if you will be able to see my system specs that I filled in when i signed up to these forums but i'm running Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite L450D laptop. If you need any more info please let me know.

I would love any help you could give me...

Many thanks.

Do you have trouble loading the log in page
Welcome to Facebook
or is it after you are logged in & cannot load your own facebook page ?
If it is the latter maybe your page has got corrupted on Facebooks servers.
Try logging into facebook on a different PC to confirm the problem is only on your PC.

Thinking back to days when IE8 first came out, I recall numerous complaints on the newsgroups about IE8 but one consistent recommendation was to uninstall Norton. Since I never used an anti-virus (other than the protection provided by the HOSTS file from mvps.org) I decided to install it. These days all you need is common sense, Windows Updates, and MSE as an anti-virus.

Note that you should go to Norton's website and download and run their uninstaller first. (Their program is designed not to be uninstalled easily, hence the special uninstaller.)
