SharePoint Search service is in Hung state, Starting or Stopping?

Yes, it happened today morning. I'm unable to do a search in my MOSS website. When tried search, I got an error: "The search request was unable to connect to the search service."  when I tried to do a full crawl, then it hangs there with "Starting" stage, Then I tried to stop and start the Office SharePoint search in Central admin, but I cannot stop it. It's status shows "stopping". Hmmm
SharePoint Search service is in Hung state - Starting or Stopping

Here are the things you can try go get this issue solved:
stsadm -o osearch -action stop
stsadm -o osearch -action
Restart Search Service

Or You can try:

net stop oSearch
net start oSearch

If you still run into the same issue, then try the following:
psconfig -cmd services -install

This will configure SharePoint search again!!!
