Security Rating:

The most common file with the name "save.exe" is an adware program:www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/save.exe.html 

The "save"-adware displays advertisements in pop-up windows whenever certain websites are visited.
It creates the folder Save inside the system's Program Files directory, then drops certain files into this folder in order to perform its adware routine.
It also uninstalls the software SaveNow from the infected machine.
You have to check the full path and the properties of this file to decide if it is dangerous or not.

If you can not remove save.exe (because you can not locate it, or it is in use), download Security Task Manager. This program can kill the process, delete or quarantine this file, or just list all security related information about this file and all other running background processes.

All comments about save.exe:
SAVE!/SAVENOW is installed on your computer as a module that comes with WeatherCast or ClockSync or other software that you downloaded from the Internet. At that time, you accepted a SAVE!/SAVENOW license agreement as part of the download process you completed. Chris Currie

comes with realplayer or edonkey dirk
annoying leads to many pop ups
It comes as a condition of operating bearshare for free....the trick is that bearshare only requires that it be installed on your computer, you can quarantine, deactivate, etc. as long as the file itself is on your system somewhere. Not a problem once you stop it from doing everything it's supposed to --- then you got bearshare for free. If anybody knows a better psp system let me know. Zen82
Die Datei "Save.exe" wird. u.a. bei der Installation des Downloadprogramms "Bearshare" zusammen mit "Weather Cast" installiert. Sie können es unter systemsteuerung - Software deinstallieren. Ich empfehle aber noch, den "Spybot Search and Destroy" zu installieren um es endgültig zu beseitigen. Karl-Heinz
Adware. downloaded with a trashy prog 'fastmind' wasnt thinking too fast at the time! Bob
It doesn't really do anything if you have like a Windows XP, it's just an annoying program. This is why I use Limewire.  See also: Link Xavier

Downloaded it with "Amazing CD & DVD Burner". NOD32 didn't find it, nor did Lavasofts' Ad-Aware SE Personal. It has created a folder in Program Files named "Save" with *.exe and some other files, and made some registry edits, which can be found if trying to find "WhenU". taraCkaans

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WhenUSave] "C:\Program Files\Save\Save.exe" - its distributed by WhenU, an advertisement company. The software they use for this adverts are called Save and SaveNow. They don't cause any security threats but they are responsible for pop-ups. The only questionable thing is the way they are installed, they come bundled with other useful programmes. IBRAHIM
It tried to terminate my Visual C++ 6.0 Runtime Libraries and also deleted some of my Dreamweaver 8 software files. (Application log) CheeseDude781
comes with BSplayer, shows ads. Not dangerous but uses CPU and shows you adds. To uninstall, just uninstall the program it came with (in ads, whenU specifies the software it came with as 'in support of some software '.  See also: Link juz
