itunes and searchindexer.exe

Listening to music on iTunes, adding songs to a playlist in every 2-3 I go along..and I notice my laptop's fan is going mad trying to cool down my machine. Peeped into the task manager and iTunes is taking upto 20-25 % CPU, and searchindexer.exe upto 40-50 %.

Hey, I exited searchindexer sometime ago...well went to Indexing Options from control panel and ...and it says "Its indexing..." there is no option to snooze it too.

Learnt on web to remove .xml files (refer iTunes) under Advanced options of indexing; and it did make the difference straight away.
