Do not add the facebook entry, rather look and make sure your host file looks the same as the photo. If it has more entry's in the host file then your host file has been changed. Then you need to remove any additional entry's if there are more in there.

My hostfile has not been modified at all, it's a simple tracking cookie. I'll have to get an anti-virus for this thing.

Clean your cookies out of your browser, use that IOBit program. It does wonders but I'd uninstall it after you clean your machine. It's kind of annoying.

Annoying program but it does a good job.
