The message you get implies that you're using IE, in which case you can change the IE Security Settings to stop this happening :
Open Tools/Internet Options/Security/Trusted Sites to see the settings for those sites. Scroll down until you get to the Miscellaneous section, then scroll down some more until you find the setting that says 'Web sites in less privileged zones can navigate into this zone', and enable it. It sounds like you've got it set to 'Prompt'. The following link is to an old webpage, but it still applies :
The drawback is that this change will apply to all sites in your Trusted List. And I don't know why Amazon would want access to res://ieframe.dll anyway. There was a discussion about this (with fixes for the problem given) over on the CNET forums at
I'll try the Amazon site myself later and see what I get. If there's anything annoying on the site I'll make sure to give it a disapproving site review.
Thanks. The removal of the "Prompt" selection did the trick. However I took the advice of the fellow, Grif, at the referred-to C-Net discussion, and selected "Disable" rather than "Enable".
When one gets several security applications on a computer, it can be difficult to tell which one is being problematic. I couldn't remember which program used the yellow shield icon that was displayed on the warning window. My mistake was presuming it was McAfee's. I now recall the yellow shield appearing during Windows updates, perhaps Windows Defender or some such animal.
