Before it opened the window to google did you get the User Account Control box? If so, and you selected yes, then proceed with the ESET scan in the NEW window.

The box should look similar to this one, but with information about Internet Explorer.

Close out internet explorer completely, then right-click and choose Run as Administrator. It should open the User Account Control box, select yes, and then it will open IE to your homepage. You will then need to go to ESET to run the scan. :)

Let's check your settings and see if that's why you aren't getting the UAC box.

To open User Account Control Settings by clicking the Start button Posted Image, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type uac, and then click Change User Account Control settings. It will look like this:

Let me know which setting your computer is on.
