Indexing will make some searches faster but no, it is not required. In fact, I never use Windows built-in search function. I use "Everything" search (http://www.voidtools.com/). It's free (donationware) and absolutely outstanding.
Having said that, the indexing service shouldn't run at 100% cpu (I assume you mean cpu usage and not disk usage). Go ahead and disable it and see if the problem goes away. But you might also want to run full scans with both your installed anti virus app AND with MalwareBytes.
