Softpedia has a file called RemoveWGA. Go there and Search for it.

Mods if this isnt allowed go ahead and remove. I just gave the info where to find it. I didnt give links or anything else.

This is exactly why I don't leave automatic updates on because that is where they sneak that wga program into your computer. I saw it in the list of updates and unchecked it.

edit: if this thing gets on your computer can it track you and possibly have you arrested?
