1. Run Notepad with administrator privileges (in start menu type notepad and then while holding together CTRL and Shift buttons, press Enter). Click Yes.
2. In Notepad open file %windir%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. %windir% is where your Windows is installed, usually C:\Windows
3. Add the following lines:
127.0.0.1 facebook.com
127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 m.facebook.com
4. Save the file and close the notepad.
