type your password into notepad in plain text, you may see that one of the keys is throwing up a different character to what your expecting.  It may be something like your keyboard settings are set to a different location.

its there to stop malicious software installing on your os without your consent.  Like most things that IE comes bundled with, its more restrictive than helpful :)

First restart your system -- most of problems solved by restarting windows machine

Next:- Clear Cookies/Cache/Browsing history from the browser you use

If still face the same issue try using a different browser

Try all the above options hopefully at least one will work for you..!

i did this many times  does nothing,has something to do with  having protected mode in off postion

Yes - the protected mode will be blocking the session cookies.  Just leave it turned off or add facebook to your list of trusted sites.  Personally I would turn if off as it will slow down the day to day speed of IE

I have ripped this from another site:

I was able to resolve my facebook logon/cookie error under Windows 7 and IE 8 by doing the following (tried several steps individually with no success, but something in this full frontal assault did it).

1) With IE closed delete facebook cookies (manually not within IE) look in \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies and ..\Cookies\Low

2) Launch IE anddeselect: Enable protected mode browsing (Tools / Internet Options / Security tab)

3) Change privacy setting to accept all cookies and added facebook as an accepted site (somewhat redundant).

4) Restart IE and Logon to facebook (it worked!), poke around (go to settings), logout

5) Promptly recheck: Enable protected mode, and set privacy setting back to medium high.

After doing this sequence once, I can now logon with my usual settings.

You generally delete cookies from the browser:

if you use IE--> Go to Tools --> Intenet Options --> General Tab ---> Browsing history section

Click Delete -->and select all check boxes and apply the changes
