Computer prob

Am having issues trying to log on to FB - keep getting an error message telling me to check HTTP port 80, HTTPS port 443 and FTP port 21 at my firewall - anyone out there know how I do this? cheers

    have you got any other firewall software running other than the windows one?

    first thing, check to see if anything has changed your internet settings

    go here:

    Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings

    made sure the Proxy server box isn't ticked

    you should also run a full virus and spyware check... cause something been playing with the settings. could be an windows or mcafee update that accidentally did it... but it could also be some sort of malware.

    Cheers both - just ran a full scan (hence me being offline for so bloody long) and it seems to have sorted it. Had tried to connect to work's VPN earlier and encountered a prob with that so both may be connected - will check out with the IT guys in the office tomorrow.
