How to stop Office SharePoint Server Search Service:

Using stsadm to stop the osearch service will blat all the indexes:


In command prompt try running:

taskkill.exe /F /IM mssearch.exe /T

 – this will terminate all mssearch.exe processes and their dependencies and then restart the mssearch.exe service again ( this might take a couple of minutes – you can check in Task manager when the service is up again).

If the above does not resolve the issue, then reboot the index server
