Sharepoint Search

Hi, We are using SharePoint 2010 and the search feature used to work but has stopped.  The error I am getting is:

Error
System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchApi.RunOnServer[T](CodeToRun`1 remoteCode, CodeToRun`1 localCode, Boolean useCurrentSecurityContext, Int32 versionIn)

Check the credentials for the Search Service Account are still valid.

Try the steps in this thread; http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_27592762.html

Get any further details from the logs that the correlation ID points to and post here. This is likely to be the log on the search app server than the WFE, but check both.

Your Search service application proxy is not responding. Check if its there below your Service Application.
Try deleting and recreating the proxy using powershell.

Okay, I unchecked Search Service Application under Configure SErvice Application Associations and then the error came up this service is not connected, so it is the proxy.  Do you have the steps to do this.  There are a many other add-ins using the proxy now too.
