The Windows Search service terminated unexpectedly - event ID 7034

The Windows Search service terminated unexpectedly - event ID 7034
Cannot start the service, this seems to be causing other issues since it has started. Around the same time I was unable to get a good Windows Server backup as it tells me I do not have permission to set the back up even though I am using the Administrator account

Why dont you run SBS BPA and check what all issues it reports .... any recent 3rd party softwares you have installed or upgraded since the issue started ?

There has been nothing installed since setting it up last year. No hardware and no software

What's the last update installed on this machine?

The very last one on March 16 were KB2807986 and KB2809289

And I'm hoping as you said that there were no uninstal or installation taken place.

So, the only possible step sounds like to uninstall these patches and check if the service starts - it not, install them again.

I did what Exchange_geek suggested and I have not received an event that it has stopped and I was still able to do a search, so I am hoping that has resolved it
