Outlook freezes trying to search

My Outlook (2007) froze trying to search in any folder, even an empty one 😦

Problem:

Windows Search Service (Windows 7)

Event Log Error:

The plug-in in <Search.TripoliIndexer> cannot be initialized

Solution:

Start Windows Search Service (it was stopped, I don’t why 😦 ). However, I couldn’t do it straigh forward and first I had to set the value from 1 to 0 for the next registry entry :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Search\SetupCompleted

After set that entry to 0, I tryied to start the service and it works fine. That entry automatically is set up to 1 again.

I hope it helps.
