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?

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

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