Cisvc.exe

Time and again a certain service/program runs on my computer and it uses all available CPU power and slow my other processes to an almost halt.

The program/service is called CISVC.EXE.
Has anyone encountered this service/program and can anyone tell me what is is, what it does and why it is doing it.
:confused:

My initial responce would be Virus or some sort of trojan. I have searched the Tech page on Microsoft.com and tried to read about it in HELP files native to XP, but no luck.

I would appreciate any suggestions

Might get my fingers burnt for this one but here is my two pence worth, i have just checked out what this is, its a service for Indexing and is used for remote control, aparently it is not important in any way so i would suggest killing it as a service, may well be wrong but found some interesting stuff here!! check out the read more on this serbice, aparently a bit of a resource hog! :mad:

Not really, sorry, when i said remote control I was meaning the remote control protocol (which is why this service is running.)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
