Although the cfgwiz.exe process is used by Norton Antivirus, it is not essential to its operation. It has been reported as using a large amount of system resources, so if you find it causes problems for your system you should terminate it.  See also: Link Jody Edwards

This file is installed with the driver for integrated audio on Gigabyte, ASUS and other mainboards. It provides the functionality to automatically pop-up a window when a new device (such as speakers or a microphone) is plugged into an input jack connected to the onboard audio. The audio will still function with this startup process removed, but you will loose the auto-detection functionality. Cameron
