    If not, how do you prevent the icon from showing up in the task bar????

    No you really don't need it to run at startup, if you don't want it to, start msconfig and uncheck it from the startup list. Next time you reboot it won't start.

    What does NWIZ do when it's running? I've heard it's part of media center and that sometimes it interferes with screen savers. But exactly what does it do?
