  1. Before the pandemic, I was an infrequent Facebook user. Now I keep up with chruch functions such as streaming Sunday worship services at Facebook. More recently a friend suggested I use Facebook Messenger to stay in touch with my nieces and nephews with whom I'm unable to visit face-to-face now. In the middle of setting up Messenger, Facebook locked my account. I've google'd a bunch of sites that describe how to unlock the account. The various "solutions" all end up with this page. I click continue and it just gives me the red circle. I realize I should be asking Facbook these questio
  2. Hi, I'm not sure if this is correct place to post. I bought this laptop computer in 2016, but didn't start using it regularly until 2019/2020. In 2019 from about April until July, I used it for a part-time work-from-home survey job. Then, early this year I started using it exclusively when Windows 7 became obsolete. The laptop runs slow, and this isn't something that started after an update. It just seems to keep getting slower. Sometimes it seems particularly slow when using the internet or specific websites (like FaceBook, etc). Btw, I usually use MS Edge browser. Rarely do
  3. The night of the 17th, I was using the Facebook app while suddenly a download in progress icon appeared in the status bar. I pulled down the notifications screen just in time to catch a glimpse of the word "attackers" followed by a bunch of symbols like $ before it disappeared. I could not find anything in the downloads folder list, ESET premium that was monitoring my phone and all downloads hadn't even detected it, and I tried in vain to search online using only the selected phrases I had managed to glimpse. Then by sheer luck, today, I managed to find a thread on this problem with the ful
  4. For a few months I was unable to access my newsfeed (Home) on Facebook. I asked FB, but they offered no help. I installed and ran Malwarebytes, and it fixed the problem! Evidently some malware was overloading my cache, and this fixed it!
  5. Okay, im sorry if this doesn't go under the right topic, its the closest to my problem. I accidently downloaded a backdoor agent by accident & it infected my pc with a bunch of other crap. I used Malwarebytes & its in quarantine for 2 years now. Everything has been back to normal. 6 months ago my Facebook was hacked advertising glasses, I changed my password & logged out of all devices which solved the problem. Is this the Backdoor agent key logging & someone used my account? I ran a quick scan & found PUPs that are harmless. Please forgive me but Im honestly paranoid
  6. I was reading my Facebook feed using Firefox (v56, 64bit) and saw a story about the Clemson coach and so I clicked on the story. A new tab opened up and then the browser suddenly looked like there was a problem with the video card, the PC speaker started making a constant shrill noise, and a web login (similar to what you'd see with IIS or Apache) showed on my screen. I went to task manager, killed Firefox and disconnected my connection to the Internet. I then started Malware Bytes, reconnected to the Internet long enough to get the updates, then disconnected again and ran a custom scan on t
  7. I accidentally infected my computer last week. I immediately updated Malwarebytes, unplugged my ethernet and completed a scan. Many items were removed as you will see in my initial scan. I restarted my computer and performed the scan again but a pattern appear no matter how many times I restarted my computer. PUP.Optional.Trotux is always found and reappears. My taskbar is largely non-responsive apart from my ability to close and open windows e.g. Windows 10 start button, volume control and the notifications button are all inactive. If I try and use them nothing happens and occasio
  8. Hi, I have been facing a lot of redirecting problems on my google chrome for Mac OS X El Captain 10.11.2 on an iMac. 1.

  9. Ok I am a Facebook user, started playing R2 Games such as "Wartune", or "Winterfrost Legacy" and my antivirus says I have malware now, cant remove it. First of all I dont understand how Facebook can allow this company to infect users computers. What should I do to remove the malware?
  10. About a month ago I started getting a Mircosoft certificate error on my Facebook page.. I just clicked on show content without thinking about it (dumb).. Then a week ago I got a pop up saying they needed to check if the name I use there is valid. I clicked "ask again". Tonight it did. And I am shocked at what they are asking for. This must be a hack and scam but I've not found anything on the net. I ran Malbyte and it did remove one Trojan. I restarted but am still getting the same pop up. Here is what it looks like. Anyone know if this is legit or can help me? Thank You. **** Submit Your Do

  13. Hello, A family member has downloaded this executable file while browsing Facebook: Profile Viewer - 5.exe. Then has tried to run it, clicked the "Run" button when prompted by Windows 7, but nothing has seemed to happen. However, the executable has installed a program named "Update" which seems to be posting on Facebook it's download links. I removed the program via "Programs and Features" in the Control panel of Windows, but would like to scan for additional files left. One of the reasons is because Google Chrome now displays ads in the bottom left corner (something similar like here http://f

  16. Post Merged We look for post with 0 replies, so when you reply to your own topic, we assume you're being helped. Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as possible. I have been trying to block Facebook on my wife computer (per her request) for a little over a week now. Every time I update the host file and add www.facebook.com to the host file. Every time I do this it blocks facebook for a period of time. Then eventually the line is removed automatically by something and she is able to access facebook again. This is sketchy as stuff and I am not the only one experiencing
