The cache folder stores various pieces of the web pages you visit, including HTML code (which often has embedded JavaScript code) and external script files. If your security software detects patterns in those scripts as potentially malicious, then you could expect to hear from it.

But if it's happening frequently, that is strange.

Which program reports that there are viruses, trojans, and malware in the cache folder?
