Description:

Part of NVIDIA's NVIEW Display Management Software - included in drivers for consumer and professional graphics products. This entry runs the "NVIDIA Display Setup Wizard" if you connect (or already have connected) an additional display once the drivers have been installed. In later drivers it also loads the "nView Desktop Manager" (if you enable it via Control Panel → NVIDIA nView Desktop Manager) if you want to use features such as Hot Keys and Zoom. In both cases nwiz.exe doesn't remain in memory

Startup information:

Registry (Start → Run → regedit)

MSConfig (Start → Run → msconfig → Startup)
