There you can click to move them higher on the list (so become the primary search option), or choose "Get more search engines" to add one.

The logs show you have slightly outdated versions of vulnerable programs, so Go to each of these sites and update to the latest version (keep your eyes open - they often slide in "opportunities" for things like Google, or McAfee's scanner):
(For Adobe Reader and Flash Player - uncheck the useless McAfee scan, if offered)
(For Java 7 Update 21 - trying to slip Ask adware/spyware to systems lately, so watch and uncheck it)
I notice you don't seem to have Java installed, but it is helpful when viewing certain aspects of websites.
Eset, if you don't plan to use it again, uninstalls through the Control Panel - Uninstall/Programs and Features.
You can also at this time delete the files/folders of the tools we used. To assist with some of that, run OTL again. This will help by automatically removing some of the tools we used.
Just click CleanUp, and select Yes. When it finishes removing some of the tools and files we used there just agree to the reboot.
In addition, I like to recommend reviewing the information here to make sure you stay malware free.

When CAT opens, place a check next to:
Reset Windows Update
Then click Apply Checked Fixes, and agree to start the installer service. When it completes it's changes, click the upper left X and agree to close CAT. It will also open a log file - just close that for now.
A Caution - Please refrain from the temptation to effect other changes with CAT.
Reboot, and try updating again please.

Go to Start Search, type update, and then in the resulting list click Windows Update.
Then click View update history.
Click the Status heading to bring the failed updates to the top, if needed.

Then the same procedure, and uninstall IE 9. Reboot after.
Then just use Firefox as you usually do.

Be sure to continue to temporarily disable any protective software when running the scan tools we use here.
Download ComboFix.exe from here to your desktop, then click that to run that scan. Agree to any warnings you might receive.
A caution - do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.
Allow the scan to run. When completed a text window will appear - please copy/paste the contents back here. This log can also be found at C:\ComboFix.txt.
