The solution to the error that you are viewing in the event viewer is

Check for low performance in CPU, input/output and memory and then restart windows search service.

To check for low CPU performance, input/output and memory; do the following

  • Generate system diagnostics report.
  • Start resource monitor.

And to start and stop windows search service:

Go to and open command prompt in accessories. Then type 'net stop wsearch' to stop search services and 'net start wsearch' to start it. (These commands are without quotes)

Then verify to prevent the error in future. For more info on event id 3007 view this page

Hi there,
The solution is quite simple for the Event ID 3007.
All you need to do is go To Control Panels, then to your Programs wizard and select Activate or Deactivate Windows Resources. From there you will see a service called "windows search", uncheck that, close the wizard and reboot.
There, that's all there is too it.
