Hum.. I found this.. maybe it will ease your mind.

Does the Transition Wizard send any information about me to Comcast?
 
No. The Transition Wizard will run each time your computer starts up, until the server side activation for the Wizard is set after July 1st, 2003. The Wizard does not contain any personally identifiable information about you or your PC and will not transmit any information to the Comcast servers. When the server-side application is activated, you will be prompted with a series of screens and the Wizard will automatically convert your Outlook Express and Internet options to work with the Comcast High-Speed Internet Service.

Here's a whole list of questions and answer they give.

Why do I have to download the Transition Wizard?
In order to properly and fully utilize all of the Comcast.net services, your system must be configured with new Outlook Express settings and the self-healing support agent. Comcast offers many services through its portal, which can only be accessed with a Comcast.net username. Please go to http://connect.comcast.net to download the Transition Wizard.

i dont like the self healing idea to much?? >:(

The only thing I would add is the transition wizard is (supposely) going to set up the forwarding as well.
Changing the setting is nothing to me.. but I'm just interested in seeing if they succeed in doing it without any problems. ;)
Hayc59.. if you haven't activated it yet.. you can remove it. No sweat.
