It is used by a keyboard driver. see link. Ignore the comments that it is a trojan.  See also: Link
showwnd.exe is included with the Chicony keyboard software and is used by the software to stop the keyboard driver's taskbar entry from reappearing. It is not necessary to remove the keyboard software, however if you wish it can be removed through Add or Remove Programs. Mike M.
If it's 36,864 bytes in size and esepcially on a Gateway or you have a Chicony keyboard then it's harmless Joe Wein
