    From what I can see, and yo have to summarise what you find Goggled, it iss the Microsoft Content Indexing Daemon which is part of Window's indexing service. IAs a result, like all such things Windows, it may tie up too much of system's resources on slower computers. It can be turned off/removed using MS's instructions in the link. See also: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899869, but from my understanding it should not fbe deleted outright.

    I have indexing switched off and have suffered no ill effects as far as I know...but that may depend on how you use your computer.

    Hope that helps? :D
