Task Manager Lists cidaemon.exe - Windows Indexing Service


Slow computers are a drag, especially when trying to work or get out of the office quickly.

If you use defrag and other utilities to improve speed without satisfactory results, have you tried turning off the indexing service?

The indexing service runs in the background, indexing files for quick retrieval. However, it uses CPU and that can be frustrating when you are trying to work.


You can create a Desktop shortcut to quickly and painlessly turn the indexing service on and off.
