Could a virus be stopping me from accessing Facebook?
Question by Eliis V. /

I have tried all of these advice provided in the “How To Recover Your Facebook Account When You Can No Longer Log In” article but nothing worked for me. If I visit Facebook it gives me “HTTP error 500 (Internal Server Error)” messages.

Is it possible I have a virus that is preventing me from accessing the site? Can you help me solve this?

Please, help me! :)

    Virus is nothing but a set of commands, if you may. It can control the way in which any application behaves on your system.

    That said, it would be good if you could try accessing your FB account from a different machine. If that works, there is definitely an issue with your system. If not, the issue is with your FB account itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Some viruses are made to block sites, you can scan for this. Try another browser or try by clearing cache memory.

    check your host file as well.
    and then selecting hosts.
    open notepad with administrative privileges, go to the location above and check if is there. if yes erase it.
    that should fix it.

    Use online virus scanners,
    I suggested this because if virus is preventing your system to open facebook, this online virus scanners will detect it easily.

    This may be because of Facebook DNS changes few days ago.
    So many peoples having trouble logging in it is a temporary issue as said by facebook officials.

    A virus definitely could stop you from accessing a website. Check if any other websites are blocks which could help determine if it's virus related or not.
