Unsure what this means on Eset Nod32?

A few months ago my parents were using the computer and when I returned home I noticed that Nod32 had terminated a connection on the internet. It said that in the HTTP filter, access to the site (a rogue website was listed) was terminated as three Agent.NCU trojans attempted to connect to the computer. It also said that threat was detected on access to the web on application iexplore.exe

What exactly does this mean? Does it mean that my parents visited a website and the fake antivirus site may have been contained on the website and it tried to send some trojans to cause havoc, but they were terminated? I am unsure of what this means as my parents didn't see anything and I certainly did not experience it. I ran multiple scans with Nod32 and Malwarebytes and nothing was found. Do I need to do anything else to ensure that the computer is clean, as it seems that a previous autorun infection is no longer an issue.

Thanks everyone :)

It means that a website which was being loaded was blocked from loading in whole or in part because Nod32 recognized it as a threat. It was blocked before anything dangerous could be downloaded.
