Yeay you've got a couple of bad ones in there. Winadserve and winad slave are adware programs. Download a copy of spybot search & destroy and hijackthis from the following links:

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

Do an install and then update them before doing a scan. Here's another link to a forum messge that will show you what to look for:

I just want to add that while Spybot S & D is great, I find that no
single application ever finds everything. I would do everything
RW said and add Ad-AwareSE in there to.

Also be carful with Hijackthis. It is a program that will show you
VALID registry settings that may or may not have been changed
/ hi-jacked. It is an invaluable tool, but requires some
knowledge of the settings. If you are uncomfortable with the
report, feel free to post it and we can all help you decipher it.

Good Luck,

razz

Also, in the future if you find a process you would like to know about, you can Google it. Type the name of it in the search field at www.google.com . Rest assured, if it's bad, it will come up right away at the top.
