C:\WINDOWS\system32\cisvc.exe consumes too much CPU

Lately whenever I restart my laptop I see that CISVC.exe service starts consuming 99.99% CPU. Every time I restart my laptop I had to kill this service to have my laptop behaving normal.

It was high time to do some research on this service. Here are some details about this process.

Display Name: Indexing Service

Description: Indexes contents and properties of files on local and remote computers; provides rapid access to files through flexible querying language.

Path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\cisvc.exe

This is a standard windows service and do not delete the executable. Indexing files on your system is useful and helps improve performance. This service usually runs if you have done some file transfers recently. No matter what this service can be easily handled. Follow the steps below.

1. Open services.msc. Go to RUN --> type services.msc and press enter
2. Now search for Indexing Service
3. Stop the service and set startup type to Manual.

Restart and cisvc does not appear anymore in your process list.

Since it is an indexing service as and when your data/no. of files on your laptop increases this services starts indexing(only if you have turned indexing on) all the files stored on a particular drive.

This takes large cpu until it completes indexing all the files.
