Question Crashing problem


Hi,
Every time when I visit facebook site my system crashes, everything that I have opened just closes and my machine returns to a login screen. This only happens when visiting facebook, and I can't relate this to administrative restrictions because I can visit facebook from other computers within the same network.
I am using Scientific Linux 5.4.
Where might be the problem?

Cheers

Yeah it is an office system. What do you mean by "someone", you mean an adminstrator or an outsider/intruder hacking into my system?
Your suggestions!!

Please calm down. I'm not that sure yet. Does this only happen when you visit facebook? If that's the case, there could be a program that monitors your surfing activities and if you go to a site that the person that deployed the program does not want you, it makes your session end.

This is just my sense, I'll try if I can to help you know how to find the software and remove it. I'm not that of an expert though.

If this is true I believe it's best if this thread is moved to Linux Security.
