    I am getting these three error messages in my event viewer at start up. For some reason I get these three error messages three times in a row and then they repeat twice, so there is a total of nine error messages.

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: DCOM
    Event Category: None

    Description:
    The Windows Search service failed to start due to the following error:
    The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    When I go into Services it says that Windows Search startup type is automatic but it is not strted and when I try to start it maually the popup says:

    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

    Also, if I go to the Start menu and go to System Information -- System Summary\Software Environment\Windows Error Reporting these errors are not listed there. There are no entries after 12/9/2013.

    I am still able to search for files in Windows Explorer but I cannot use the Windows Search when I go to Start --> All Programs --> Windows Search

    Is Windows Search important? I disabled it and the Event IDs 7000, 7009, and 10005 are no longer appearing, but now the following error message appears three times in a row in the Event Viewer:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: DCOM
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 10005
    Date: 12/11/2013
    Time: 3:43:52 PM

    Computer: MC-5812682DB5F0
    Description:
    DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server:

    Also, even though I disabled it, it still appears in the Task Manager. Is Windows Search necessary for Windows to work properly?

    I was able to successfully disable Windows Search and I am no longer receiving error messages in the Event Viewer. I will consider this issue resolved.
