Egad is a morphed form of egads.

Egads used to mean "ye gods" and now is more closely linked to "OMG" or "oh god"; Some people think there is only one god, so egad has evolved to express that idea. At the heart of it is the notion that god is a trickster who screws with us.

We use it to say that something severely messed up has just happened.
Egad--my computer crashed and I lost all my work. Again.
