AtwtusbIcon.exe and atwtusb.exe arrived on my Windows 7 PC when I clicked on the installation of the driver for the "Trust Flex Design Tablet". When I removed them, the graphical tablet was not working anymore. I resintalled the driver, and it worked again. Maybe there is another name for the "Trust Flex Design Tablet" in other countries than mine (France).
