Yes. There is an option to turn this on and off. If the user
is not admin it will be installed into his sub-tree only.

At installation time simply disable the integration.

Or, you can also use 
	tlmgr postaction ....
to add/remove the integration.

Really? Is there a newer texworks version out there than the one
in TL? If yes please let me know and we update it, no problem.
