SharePoint Exception error while doing a search.

Hi - wondering if someone could help me in diagnosing a SharePoint 2010 problem.  

When we try to do a search from within SharePoint we get the following:

-----------------------------------------------------------
Error
Internal server error exception:
Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.
Correlation ID: 71a9977f-2720-4401-b46c-532375a6b4fd
Date and Time: 6/7/2013 12:39:10 PM
 Go back to site
------------------------------------------------------------



In the SharePoint logs I'm seeing:
-------------
An exception occurred when trying to issue security token: An error occurred while receiving the HTTP response to http://localhost:32843/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc/actas. This could be due to the service endpoint binding not using the HTTP protocol. This could also be due to an HTTP request context being aborted by the server (possibly due to the service shutting down). See server logs for more details..
---------------




In the servers event viewer (application) I'm seeing:

Can you suggest what I might look at before we try recreating the server again from scratch?

Thanks

What is your topology?  Single server?

Did search work previously?  Are there any authentication issues in the farm right now?  Meaning, are any users having trouble logging into their sites?  

I would look in IIS and verify the SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool is started.

single server - it had worked previously.  Not seeing any other authentication issues and the SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool is started in IIS.

We are running SQL 2008 R2 Express.  Had a problem about a week ago - ran out of space and had to upgrade from 2008 to R2.  I am assuming the problem started occurring at the same time.  So I don't know if when we hit the 4GB limit with 2008 soemthing happened causing the search to stop and it wasn't resolved by the r2 upgrade.  Everything else seems to be working properly.

If you don't have a lot invested into search (meaning its all out of the box settings), you could blow away your search service app and recreate.

We ended up recreating the entire server and moving the data over.  Could never find solution.
