I have a feeling that this process slows down my PC. It didn't usually start, now it does all the time. And I'm sure I haven't changed any settings.
Is there anyway to disable to process from starting?

That is an indexing file for windows and normaly runs in the background
Go to my computer and right click on the (NTFS) drives. Click properties and uncheck "Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for fast file searching" in the General tab. Repeat for all your (NTFS) drives.
