                      I don't get it ...
                      Do you have the Windows Search feature installed?
                      Is its service running? (It does not show on the list with service with "inactive" status...)
                      Please provide some answers, so we'll know how to look further for the solution...

                        You say you reinstalled Windows 7. Did you format first, or install over itself? Why'd you reinstall in the first place?
