Windows 7: Trying to Get Rid of Windows Search

Trying to Get Rid of Windows Search

Hey guys, first off, I'd like to say I appreciate the work and help that is given on this website, it is extremely helpful.

So basically, I was previously able to disable the Windows Search service from the 'services.msc' program, but I accidentally enabled it and cannot disable it. It does not appear in services.msc. And I have a custom version of Win7 (Tiny7) that wouldn't allow me to enable/disable certain windows features, but now I cannot disable windows search, either (Even though it worked before). Does anyone know an alternative method to disabling the service?
