Let's Check Your Device for Malicious Software in my Facebook account on another browser than Windows

Could somebody give me a link to solve once for all this problem ? Facebook  is  asking  me every  time  and  block my account  when I'm trying  to  sign in on another device or browser than  Windows.

Facebook thinks you have malware (who knows how they guessed this). They are trying to force you to use software you don't want or need. Likely their motives are 50% they think you are infected and 50% they get paid when they force a user to install that software.

Maybe you can reset your password (without needing to log in) and maybe then they will let you back in without being forced to run some crazy software.

One user had his computer pretend to be a mac and was given an option to remove the block on his facebook account:

Another user complained to facebook on twitter and got it fixed. (https://twitter.com/facebook)

Another user complained to the Better Business Bureau.

The weird thing is it went away this morning when I logged in - two hours later I got ALMOST the same thing when I logged in a second time. This time, instead of  ESET software, it was telling me to download Kaspersky Labs software. Cleared cache and browsing history, and this time it cleared it. But of course, Facebook has blocked me from posting links for 2 days saying my computer must have had a virus, which it DIDNT
