Spotlight Server Disabled - Help
I'm running 10.6.1 and Spotlight has suddenly stopped working. I've tried the usual terminal-based fixes (e.g. re-indexing, etc) but it keeps telling me that "Spotlight Server is disabled" and I can't re-enable it using the normal terminal commands that I've found through google.
Also, my external hard drive has stopped working all of a sudden, firewire connection.
All I've done recently is install World of Warcraft.
I've tried repairing permissions, zapping pram, etc.

sudo launchctl load -w com.apple.metadata.mds.plist
I know nothing about Unix, but this worked.

and I tried all of those, and now I actually get 2 notes to popup now, prefrences and search...
so I tried your little terminal code, and now, it spotlight searches, but it only returns image results, which needless to say is not helpful
Any idea on how to resolve this issue?
Any help would be appreciated.
