it loads itself into ALL internet applications whether they have anything to do with microcraps ie or not
I can't download anything that may help, I can't open my explorer
For me, its showing that "Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing. export function in a delay-load dependent module." Please check that once in your systems through Dependency Walker
That it pop's up everytime I switch pages.
ran snoopfree privacy shield (anti-keyboard logger utility) and found ieframe.dll was monitoring the keyboard - file capacity was non-standard, even while noted as MS I took the precaution of disabling the hook.
it is fairly straightforward what ieframe.dll is. It is an internet explore window object. Programmers use it to insert internet windows into their programs.

Ieframe.dll is used to display webpages inside applications.
Recently, I've been seeing a window pop up, asking me permission to open/save some file from the internet...and ieframe.dll is asking me. It comes right after a similar request from (which I've never visited). These windows consistently come with a mysterious blank, invisible window that's either supposedly Internet Explorer (which is not my default browser, and is instigated by me on the internet), or regular Windows Explorer (when opening it up myself). Really curious and hesitant about it; denied it all the time, and it always ends up closing the mysterious IE window..

I had it show up when trying to print from IE 7 on a new Windows 7 Pro partition. The print dialog box won't exit unless you reboot. Firefox worked fine.
Every time I go on the box asking if I want to go from a trusted site ( ieframe.dll pops up repeatedly. I hit cancel three times to get rid of it. It continually pops us on this one site. Very annoying.

it is save... because its bin used by many program to show up internet!
I had a problem with calling for the ieframe.dll and when I put the in my hosts file, it started a continuous loop looking for eiframe.dll, so I put that in the hosts file too... no more prolems!!
Development control for programmers, I use it within VB 6.0
I have no info but it is annoying that this pops up continuously
its the problem related to internet issues
It is used by a virus to steal info from you and to block you from the net. It is very bad and should be removed. Reinstall windows if you must - delete it.You can defrag and will find that the virus can't be moved because it is not a windows file. You can get a list of the virus files from the defrag screen.

I have this message: "res://ieframe.dll/dnserrordiagoff_webOC.htm" when ever I try to install a game. I also get "RAinstaller is undefined", and I found that I didn't even have that installed, installed it, no difference. It's only come about in the last week or so, but it won't let me do anything (it also blocks ther things) and I haven't been able to get rid of it using the advice from other forums. I don't know if it's "dangerous" as such but it's a flaming nuisance! If it's not needed, now I know where to find it I'll delete it and hope for the best. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Sounds like it is used for data mining
All I know is that my computer got a virus, and when I try to open the Internet is says ieframe.dll then says Internet explored can't display the webpage. I'm not reall sure what to do. I can't connect to the Internet on it, so I can't really figure out how to fix it.
it keeps coming up when i go on a website
is it safe to use
I am unable to access my work computer from home via my gotomypc because of ieframe.dll.
it keeps me from opening the internet or running any security programs. before it took over my mcafee flashed a trojan warning but then won't allow me to open any security.
When I open my computer every time I get message about downloading ieframe.dll. But windows is warning me to download it. I can't remove it. It is boring.
In my case this file has been hacked, script was inserted in it that builds a fake IE page, if you cant print from the IE page you have been hacked. ieframe,dll has a flaw that lets it be exploited by inserting dangerous script in it, rootkit
Neccessary for german language pack
Evidently not much but everytime I try to reply to an email it says the page can't be displayed because of http://ieframe.dll/dnserrordiagoff.htm# make sure it's turned on or retype the address but when I retype it it just takes me to a sight to but pc cleaners. Can't figure out how to fix it.
