Why do you want to run AIS in safe mode?
Very few drivers are loaded at the safe mode level.
Drivers are needed for avast to function.
You may want to schedule a "boot scan".

I think that is a feature has to be added if not already available, in Avast Internet security 2015

The boot scan is of no use at the moment since I need to use my PC for long other than scan it.

For the time being please attach the log results so that a malware removal specialist can take a look.
The quicker you get this done the quicker your computer will be back to normal.
