Run the following command to restart the Search service:

  1. What about granting the IIS_WPG group "Local Activation" rights in DCOM to OSearch?  

    This seems to fix it for me, per this article: http://blog.justinho.com/CommentView,guid,00aaeeb7-012d-4362-acdf-c6b2afd97258.aspx

  2. None of the obove solutions fixed my problem.
