I am having some clean up done , and was instructed to run an ESET Scan. I am in the middle of the scan right now, and found 7 treats so far.
My problem is. I just found out that my power will be down in an hour, and i don't think my scan will be complete be then. Will this this power outage, in the middle
of my scan affect any thing ?

FYI for future online scans...

Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. In some cases you may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus if you encounter a problem and try running the scan again.

If you have other antivirus, antispyware or anti-malware programs running on your computer, they may intercept the scan being performed by the ESET Online Scanner and hinder performance. You may wish to disable the real-time protection components of your other security software before running the ESET Online Scanner...

ESET Online Scanner FAQs

If you recognize any of the detections as legitimate programs, it's possible they are "false positives" and you can ignore them or get a second opinion if you're not sure. ESET's detection rate is high and can include legitimate files which it considers suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not always the case. Be careful what you choose to remove. If in doubt, ask before taking action.
