Is it OK to disabled the Indexing Service (cisvc.exe) on Server 2003 Running as a Web Server? I only ask because it's hogging the CPU like crazy for hours and hours.


It is ok, unless you need it (chance is low for that).

Or you just let it run - it uses very little cpu once it is finished with the initial indexing.
