can i disable ms search?

the collect procedure for the msscntrs.dll service…generated and error. I am getting this error on my sql 2000 sp3 server.
Looks like this error is corrupted full text index. service? I checked the server: there is no full text catalog defined.
Can i disable Microsoft search service without harm SQL?
Yes, if your app don’t use full text you can disable without problem.

"The Collect Procedure for the "MSSCNTRS" service in DLL "C:pROGRA~1COMMON~1SystemMSSearchBinmsscntrs.dll" generated an exception or returned an invalid status. Performance data returned by counter DLL will be not be returned in Perf Data Block. Exception or status code returned is data DWORD 0. " Could someone help?

Try to register the specified .DLL on the server using REGSVR32 utility.
If possible reboot the box for refresh of registry. Satya SKJ

Yes I read this but I think my problem is perf.counters…<br />So instead of unistalling mssearch i added a value "Disable Performance Counters"=1<br />to registry:<br /><br />Localmashine-&gt;system -&gt;currentcontrolset-&gt;services-&gt;MSSEARCh-&gt<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-4.gif’ alt=’;p’ />erformance.<br /><br />I still getting an error.Should I restart server after that counter added?
It happens with most services you disable that have performance counters. Try setting it to manual instead. Or use the registry key you entered, might require a restart.
