    Take a look here: http://www.cexx.org/osama.htm

    Incidentally, <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.com/index.html">Ad-Aware</A> removes it. This is a program which scans your system for spyware.

    After having downloaded AAW, also download the latest Signature file (Reflist.sig) : http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ls/reflist.zip
    Unpack it to the Lavasoft Ad-Aware folder in Program Files, and have it overwrite the one that's there.

    Then have your drives and registry scanned for spyware, check all found files and reg keys, click continue, and have them removed.
    Reboot.

    Good luck,

    Welcome to TSG!
    wnad.exe is a spyware program which you probable downloaded when you download the Osama, your Mama game.
    Here is a site that explains it and its removal.
    http://antivirus.about.com/library/weekly/aa101701b.htm
    You may also want to check you whole system over for spyware
    Here is a program we all recommend.
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/downloads.html
    Download adAware and run. If web3000 or new.net are found you cannot automatically remove them they will have to be uninstalled. All others can be removed using adaware.
