Is something going on with Facebook or is it my computer. When I was about to type, my screen went dark and I have some weird stuff on the bottome of my screen like inspect, div#hea, div.rfloat, ul#page, andli#navHc.

Looks like you might been infected.
Do you have an active antivirus program running in your computer? What about a firewall?
You need to clean cookies, and run some antivirus and malware cleaners now.
Full scan. See what's going on there.

Thank you so very much. Two people on Facebook told me that it is "gremlins" and the other person told me to shut down and reboot. Didn't think it was a virus, but I do have a virus protection. I do some scans. Forgot that. Thanks.

Also don't forget to try another web browser - if it happens there its likely to be a virus of some sort. Very strange though...

Doesn't sound like a BSOD...

I did a scan with my virus protection, checked my windows and they are updated so no scan is needed. Then I did a defrag. What else would you all suggest? This happened on Facebook. The screen was dark but when I moused over those words I mentioned certain parts of the screen would light up. What is BSOD?

Download malwareybytes and update and then run it.
What virus program are you using?

This is still happening to you?

After I closed the program out, it didn't come back again. I downloaded the "malwareybytes" like you said it took like over 2 hours to do. It only found one and when I clicked to view it, it come up with the program. I have CA Security as my virus protection.

I suggest spybot search and destroy. I disable the teatimer when I install though because it slows things down tremendously if you let it run the teatimer automatically

The home of Spybot-S&D!

and/or superantivirus.

SuperAntiSpyware - Download

I have used malwarebytes, but find that superantivirus catches more.

Both are free (they do ask for donations).

A single antivirus program just does not catch everything. It pays to run other scans manually from time to time.

I also suggest a registry cleaner like this one: Free Window Registry Repair Updte

Make sure you have it set up a restore point before you clean the registry though. It's fast and catches a lot of errors.

You said: it didn't come back again, so I assume whatever it was - you cleaned it out

Never heard of CA security but from looking at the reviews its pretty poor. If you were using something like MSE you probably would never have gotten this bug in the first place.
