Have been using Kaspersky IS contentedly for the past few years on both desktop and wife's laptop.
Desktop OK. When we do a full scan on the laptop (approx weekly at present) it comes up with a Trojan warning. We're quite happy that KIS kicks it into touch, but then, after a while, the same thing turns up again, e.g. today, with a seven hour gap between. It's been going on like this for several weeks now, although sometimes we can go for several days without it appearing.
My wife has many, many contacts through her interest in family history, and we assume that it has come through one of them? Although, as I wrote, KIS is doing the business, we'd like to know where it originated and more importantly, how to kill it once and for all.
The KIS detailed report shows 'Detected: HEUR.Trojan.Script .Iframer' in the Result column, and the Object is described as being in one of the Temporary Internet Files.
I'd appreciate your comments/suggestions as to how to get rid of this irritation.

Delete all your browser caches. Consider using CCleaner (free version) to do this in depth (run the cleaner scan only (analyze first, then run cleaner) till you're comfortable).

Note; clearing your caches will remove things like cookies, forum passwords etc but is worth it and considered good 'housekeeping'.

HEUR suggests to me that it's the result of heuristic scanning. Sometimes KAV and other anti-virus software will mistake some files for viruses or trojans.

The most important thing here is t ensure you have the firewall on, though!!

Almost certainly, one of the websites that you are visiting is infected. Whilst deleting temp internet etc files will temporarily fix the problem, the only real answer is to find out which site and contact it's admin.

Increasingly the hack/phish attacks are using features/javascript/java and other things that can be used both for good and bad, sometimes one gets flagged as a false positive due to abuse by some site...

This it is possible that nothing is wrong at all.
