Solution Title: cisvc.exe takes over cpu (XP OS)
Date Asked: 04/14/2003 05:25PM PDT

There is a cisvc.exe program that XP insists on activating at boot. The program is listed as a monitoring program for XP indexing. Indexing services is on by default. I shut it off early on through properties. First noticed a problem with Windows Explorer, which would slow down and end up "not responding." This happened frequently. Checked task manager for cpu activity. the cisvc file flatlined cpu activity at 100% plus used about 200 megs of RAM. I have 512. Irony is that cisvc is supposed to monitor the indexing service for high memory use. I searched for cisvc. Found instances of the file in C:/1386 and system/32. I renamed both instance of the file. It stayed dead in 1386 but recreated itself in system/32. Still appear in task manager at each boot. Under computer management (Administrative Tools in Control Panel)indexing service I can't delete catalogs because system says the service is active!! To keep cisvc from taking over the computer, I shut off CISVC.EXE through task manager after each boot, which is a crude way of doing business. Any idea how I can keep this file from tying up my computer.
