Hi, I am Using Windows 7 32-Bit, and my Network usually works fine, and my internet has been working fine up until recently. However about a month (maybe more) I noticed a problem that kept cutting me off occasionally and said Diagnostic Policy was not started, I troubleshooted it and it was fine. Much more recently this has been happening more frequently and troubleshooting it doesn't solve the problem. I can get online for 10-15 Mins then I am cut off again. Restarting the computer often fixes it but not always. I went to Services and found the Diagnostic Policy Service is not running, I press start and receive this error message.
Code:
The Diagnostic Policy Service service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by services or programs.
I am quite sure my loss of Internet is due to this as this is a network related service and what the troubleshooter always finds to be the problem. Other Computer/Devices in the house connect to the internet fine with no loss of connection so it has nothing to do with that. I have tried various fixes like uninstalling network adapter drivers, and checking permissions in Registry but it has not helped me. I was hoping someone here could help me diagnose the problem better and help me sort it. Thanks in Advance.

Re: Diagnostic Policy Service Cannot Start

Ok, the reason I put it in the windows vista/7 support forum is because I believe it is a problem related to the computer and not the connection, but I agree the problem is related to networking, so thanks for moving it.

Re: Diagnostic Policy Service Cannot Start

For Anyone that's interested I fixed my problem by doing a repair install of Windows 7, and then completely re-installing the drivers for my Wireless Adapter.
