    cidaemon.exe is the process for Indexing Service; a feature which supports quick searching of file contents and properties. You can go to control panel/administrative tools/services to stop the service or disable it if you wish.

    Stopping indexing is normally a good idea, since it's useless for most users, and it chews up time.
