Mijn computer wordt steeds trager en trager na verloop van tijd. Dus ben ik op onderzoek uitgegaan. Nu blijkt het proces cisvc.exe te zorgen voor een 100% processor belasting. Dit terwijl er geen applicaties draaien.
Nu heb ik de volgende vragen: 1. Wat doet dit proces? 2. Hoe kan ik het proces in te toom houden of zelfs verwijderen?
What is it? Description: Microsoft Index Service Helper, a service that monitors the memory usage of Microsoft Indexing Service (cidaemon.exe) and automatically re-starts cidaemon.exe if it uses more than 40 MB of memory.
What it isn't: a security risk
It's needed if you've set up any of your drives or directories to be indexed. Without it running, you could potentially invite a memory "hole", as the indexing service would not clear its RAM usage, as it goes.
If you are not indexing anything, there's no need for it to run, so... 1. click on start -> all programs -> administrative tools -> services 2. click on the "standard" tab 3. (sorted by Name) go down to "Indexing Service" -> double click 4. note that in the properties, it's described as "CiSvc"... (you've got the right one) 5. change the "Startup type" to 'Disabled' 6. click on "Apply" 7. click on "Stop" (if available)
Now, you should notice that your cycles come back to you and in the future, this process will not automatically start up. If, in the future, you find that your memory is mysteriously disappearing on you, try stopping ALL indexing on your drives (i.e. removing this service) and rebooting your computer.
This service always has been a major resource hog. I NEVER recommend having this service enabled. Remove the function via the "Add / Remove Programs" icon in the control panel (Windows Setup Programs). It uses about 500 K to 2 MB in an idle state, not to mention the amount of memory and CPU resources it takes to INDEX the drives. I have had people (and witnessed it on other people's computers) report to me that the Indexing Service sometimes starts up EVEN while the system is NOT idle... as in the middle of a game. You may feel, as I do, that this is unacceptable. If your computer suddenly seems "sluggish," Indexing Service is usually the cause of it.
