If you are using Norton A/V the infection may not now be on your system:-

Norton AntiVirus (NAV) detects JS.Exception.Exploit when I visit some Web sites, but will not "delete" it. Why?
When you visit a JS.Exception.Exploit Web site, the exploit is detected by NAV, usually in a temporary Internet file. NAV then reports that it cannot repair, quarantine, or even delete the file. This may happen more than once until you close the Web site. If you then scan with NAV, it finds no infections. Here is why:
NAV is detecting the exploit itself, and it detects it as it is scanned by Auto-Protect when it is copied to the Temporary Internet Files folder. Because these temporary files are deleted as soon as you close the Web page, the exploit will not be found during a regular scan because it is no longer there. Also, because it is the exploit itself that is being detected, the exploit will be detected even if you are using a patched system or even another Web browser.
