A Google search would reveal that it's not an Adobe issue. It's the indexing service running when you're not using the computer actively--at least, that's what the program thinks. You can disable it, without having to rename it.
To me, it is a real problem, in that it wants to index every file that gets changed. During this process, the file is often locked and cannot be accessed by any program, even the one that is working on that file.
I turn off all indexing on each HDD, as soon as I get them - externals too. If you have a large, rather filled HDD with an intricate folder hierarchy, turning it off can take some time.
To turn off, Rt-click on the drive in My Computer, or Windows Explorer (or whatever it is likely called in Vista) and choose Properties. There, you can turn off Indexing. Make sure that you select the All Folders radio-button (lower one, IIRC).
This will only slow down searches a little, but save you all sorts of other problems. Indexing is great on a word-processing computer, but horrible on an NLE one.
Learned to always turn mine off months ago. What a waste of electricity. It uses up way to much cpu cycles in VIsta. OFF.
