Services not doing anything won't interfere with anything, and won't be using any perceptible amount of system resources (that's why the virtual memory manager pages out unused pages, even if you have plenty of RAM). Services that ARE doing something are active for a reason. Services that would interfere with applications are set to run on idle, and have low CPU and I/O priorities. It's definitely not something you would ever gain a single FPS from, but is a good way for people to screw up their OS configurations, leading to all sorts of bizarre problems down the road.

It also has the most overhead when it's first building its indexes. From there, it only activates when parts of the file system it monitors are changed. *After* the initial index build, I haven't seen a case where it is interfering. Maybe it does in some circumstances, though nobody has ever demonstrated it, as far as I know. It's more of a 'maybe it might' thing.
