    In general Guard part should detect them.

    In the paid version, the drive-by protection mode (under webguard settings) keeps the malicious I-frames at bay from your computer.

    I'm not sure about the free Personal version though. Please anyone confirm.

    The free Avira doesn't have webguard which is needed to provide i-frame protection.

    Avira free runs well with AVG Kinkscanner. The latter potects against Iframe exploits. So you can cook up a freeware combo

    Avira Free works well with avast! Home (without Standard Shield)...

    Just exclude the files:
    Code:
    
    C:\Windows\Temp\_avast4_\unp*.tmp
    C:\Documents and Settings\xpto\Local Settings\Temp\_avast4_\unp*.tmp
    I don't know why excluding "*\_avast4_\unp*.tmp" doesn't work in Avira...
