Try upgrading iFilter on the machine this is running on.

Here is the one for the new MSOffice 2007 Documents

This one is for PDFs

From Google the error seems common to Adobe PDF documents rather than searchfilterhost

You may wish to remove any Adobe PDF readers and reinstall the latest.  Note shreedhar's comment above.

I too am getting this error, I recently installed Windows Desktop Search 4 and the error started popping up shortly after.  I tried the solution suggested above and installed the ifliter, but that has not corrected the issue.  We are running MS Office 2010, is there a new ifilter for that?  Please help, not sure how to fix this error and I have several people experiencing he same issue.

Thank you, I found that filter pack earlier today, and I applied it.  I am having my users try it, hopefully it will resolve the issue.  I will let you know.
It was installed, and after reboot, the same error appeared.  This Filter Pack did not fix the error. =(

Running on XP SP3  with Windows Desktop Search 4, and Office Pro Plus 2010

If it is XP SP3 then you are running a 32 bit version so that link probably does not apply to you.

The other possible is updating any Adobe products you may have on your system such as Reader or Acrobat.  That is the recommendation from

You could try the Foxit filter  Commercial but free to try.  I'd remove any Adobe products first including their PDF filter if you installed it.
Thanks.  I'll try that and let you know.
Has the error been resolved?
What if I disable indexing of PDF?
I have a user receiving the same error and tried everything above.
