My girlfriends laptop (windows xp) won't ever load facebook, i'm on the same internet connection with a different computer and the website loads fine.
After google search I've tried various fixes, all to no success.
I've removed the firewall, antivirus, windows firewall, i've changed explorer from IE to Firefox, i've flushed the DNS, i've ran a virus check (all clean).
I've tried typing "netsh winsock reset catalog" in cmd and restarting comp.
Tried restarting router.
Tried CCleaner, clearing cache / cookies.
Tried checking the hosts file c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and the only thing in there is 127.0.0.1 localhost.
I also made sure that in tools / options / advanced / network tab settings that it was selected as 'no proxy.
I have tried pinging facebook.com and the packets return really slow compaired to when I ping other websites.
After hours of research it seems that everyone else gets their resolve and i've tried all their fixes but nothing seems to work.
It all seems to have happened since moving back to O2 Broadband, we were with them originally then moved to talk talk, they were aweful so moved back to O2 but now there is this issue.
I was thinking of calling O2 tech but facebook works fine on my computer and on the Mac in the other room, it's just her laptop that has the issue.
Wits end =(
