Go to start - run - services.msc
select the server service and start it and check once

the Server service is already started.
I think this new Windows search is new when i upgraded Office 2007. Is there something i have to enable or installed to utilized this new search program?
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

1) Have you checked from the server whether the server service has started or not
2) There is no link between MS office 2007 and system files or server related
3) Try to disable your windows firewall from your server and check once
4) Install the Ms Office service pack from this location

I hope this will help you to resolve your issue

Windows Search was included in Office 2007

You need to have the Terminal Services and also the Windows Search services running
