Questions regarding windows 7 installation

I have installed Cygwin 1.7 twice on my windows 7 laptop.  Each time it 
installs fine but when I try to run the X server it leaves three 
different X windows open as well as an Xterm itself.  Is this the 
default behavior on 1.7?  I really would like to get just the X icon in 
the task bar and nothing else until I start an Xterm.  But even the 
Xterm opens two windows.

Anyone have any ideas as to the problem I am seeing?
