WINWORD.exe loaded by Aspose DLL

I am using Aspose Words 17.4.0.0 to modify links within Word documents. While troubleshooting an issue, I noticed that a WINWORD.exe process had been launched and was holding on to a handle to a DOC file that I was processing. Does Aspose use Word if it is installed on the computer? If so, is there a way to disable the DLL from using Word?
