Type Services.msc in the start Search box, click on the icon ....scroll down to "Diagnostic Policy". Right click, choose properties and set it to Automatic. If it's already set that way, then click to 'restart' it.

Sounds like you may have done an upgrade and not a clean install, am I right? If so do a clean install or you will find all kidns of little problems.

Hello GlobesStudios,

You could do a repair install without losing anything.

Hope this helps,
