Sorry - It's running under Local Service. I see the service is set to manual and has not been started. Do i really need this search sevice this is a basic setup and we only use sharepoint for the internal web site.
As you can tell I'm really green on the Sharepoint end of things.

you should not be running WSS Search service under a built-in account, and that is possibly the cause of your error.

and there isn't a way to disable the basic search feature... so yes, you have to have the service.  it's one of the core WSS services.

Did you manage to resolve this issue? I have a SBS 2008 Premium box that has the same 6398 error every 5 mns in the logs and driving me insane. Surley this should be configured to run out of the box without tweeks?
Thanks
