Computer is messed up b.exe process and constant system in danger message

  1. So, every like 30 seconds a process called b.exe pops up in my task manager. I can end it easily, but it comes back in 30 seconds. When it is running it causes a message bubble that says Your computer is at risk. If I let it sit there for an hour or so. Three windows pop up all titled b.exe. Also, internet sites have hijacked links whenever I do a google search, and click one of the links, it brings me somewhere else and after one back and click it again, I get to the correct site.

    There is also this in
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run
    there is sav.exe in the ANTIVIRUS section

    Well I am running the Malwarebytes' program now, but while I wait I was wondering what is wrong with always running windows in safe mode. Everything works and it seems faster.

    Nothing wrong with that
    As long as you update in Normal mode first

    Some programs don't work in Safe Mode though, I haven't tested that in the guide (maybe I should ? )

    Edit:

    You will need to provide a new HJT log (from Normal mode) as well
    You can also Advanced Edit out the above one if you wish

    Apparently after running the malwarebytes' program in safe mode everything is fixed. If you think it isn't and it may just be laying dormant please tell me.

    Well I'm happy if you are

    I don't like reading the logs anyway :)

    So solved?
