The process nwiz.exe is one of the support components for the graphic card and is associated with the video device driver including the program responsible for controlling the device’s behavior.
The nwiz.exe process is directly associated with the NVIDIA nView Wizard used for the configuration of the NVIDIA nView Control Panel, which is intended to maximize the capabilities of video display adapters using the NVIDIA engine.

It is recommended that you check your registry to identify slowdown issues.
