Default Did the wife do it?

My wife has a facebook icon on the desktop she uses as a shortcut-yesterday she yells to me "I didn't do anything" but now now there are fifteen facebook icons on the desktop-I fiddle around and delete them but the original one is also gone-So I go to google and plan to type in Facebook in the search bar to log in to her account-I put the cursor in the searchbar and hit the "f" and it will not let me type in any letters-can anybody tell me what happened,what to do,or recommend someone to come to house to repair?

OP, reboot the computer, do a complete shutdown and restart, allow any updates to complete. I just did exactly what you tried and as soon as I typed "f" the first item in the list was facebook. If this does not work, try another search engine, Bing, friefox, etc, just to see if you can get to facebook. As I recall, you can only save shortcuts to the desktop using IE. Go back to IE, and try again, if you still cannot get to facebook by google, go the the address line in IE, and enter "https://www.facebook.com/" this should get you directly to the facebook site.Then sign in and create your new shortcut.

Did you try going to the Recycle Bin, and see if the icons are there?

FaceBook is the Devil!

Put all the shortcuts in the trash, ALL of them then delete the FaceBook application from your computer then empty the trash then restart the computer then install FaceBook again if you must.

I do not like FaceBook!
