    What is nwiz /install in startup items?

    So, I was just doing something in msconfig just now and noticed a item called nwiz/install and nothing that I do not need anything installed I saw it was taking up 3mb in the task manager. I removed it and everything was fine. Does anyone know whether it is used for norton software? I was having that preinstalled in my computer and I used the Windows XP Add and Remove to remove it but also it left the Symantec Update icon in control panel and I dont know how to get rid of it. What exactly does this nwiz /install does? Can anyone let me know. Thanks

    It is the device driver utility for nvidia display cards

    You do not have to worry about it however to turn extra processes you can use startup control panel by mike lin
