    McAfee Blocking Amazon mp3 Downloader???

    I purchased an mp3 single & was downloading it as usual when McAfee blocked the download. When I looked to the details, there is a message about discovering a problem that can exploit the Flash player. I believe it was dated today & McAfee definitely hasn't taken this action in the past. I struggle with the technobabble on the page, but am reluctant to override the block. Anyone have the scoop on this? I would contact Amazon, but many of their staff members rely heavily on scripts so don't know that I would get a meaningful response. Thanks!!

    I do not and will never trust McAfee. I rid myself of this app years ago. Many others are doing the same. I would replace McAfee with either AVG 2013 AV free or MSE and see if the problem continues.

    Thanks for the input, Ted. I've used McAfee successfully for many years. The only time my e-mail was ever hacked in the past 20 years was when I was using alternative products (Avast & Zonealarm, if I recall correctly) because I'd heard so many complaints about how slow & intrusive McAfee is.

    Since I'm posting, just wanted to share a shout out to Windows Secrets. I see that my subscription is expiring & will definitely be renewing.
