Have you ever been temporarily locked by Facebook because of malware on your computer?


Nowadays, there are many malware on the internet. Like booby traps, they come in all forms. You can be infected when you click on a link in Facebook to watch a "shocking video" from a friend's status update or visit a website claiming to offer special features. Supposing you spend days cleaning up your own computer, or else, send it to the computer shop to get it fixed, would you develop a phobia for links in Facebook (or on the internet) after that?

    Bill, thanks for recommending NoScript! I have just installed it. Never knew such a thing existed!! I have never faced a problem with Facebook until 3 days ago and when it happened, it happened 3 times in a row!!!

    But you can access Facebook with other browsers, right? I still have 16 hours before my ban is lifted. This is the 3rd consecutive ban in 3 days! But I can't blame them. AdwCleaner found many malware that are hopefully cleaned now.

    Gags2480, just type "facebook temporarily locked" in Google Search. Of late, there has been an increase in Facebook scams serving malicious browser extensions. Once installed, the extension will load a script from another website to Facebook.
