I have Windows 7 and I'm trying to start Windows Search in Services and I get the error, "The Windows Search service on Local Computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

I've tried everything by looking at the registry such as making sure SetupCompletedSuccessfully is set to 0 which is was.  I don't believe it ever worked since I had this Windows 7 reinstalled.

Thanks in advance!
