Windows 7: The diagnostics policy service is not running

The diagnostics policy service is not running

While doing maintenance on Windows 7, I got this troubleshooting report: THE DIAGNOSTICS POLICY SERVICE IS NOT RUNNING. What and where is this service, and how can I get it running? What does it do, and why did it stop running? This is the first time I hear about such service. Anyone? Thanks.

The Diagnostic Policy Service enables problem detection, troubleshooting and resolution for Windows components. If this service is stopped, diagnostics will no longer function.
Start> In search box type services.msc> Enter> Scroll down to Diagnostic Policy Service> Left click on Diagnostic Policy Service and upper left click on Start the service> If you see instead Stop the service, click on Restart the service under that



See if that doesn't restart the service. If it does, now right click on Diagnostic Policy Service> Properties> Make sure the Startup type is set to Automatic> If it is not, click on the arrow on the drop down menu and choose Automatic> Save and OK your way out



If you get any errors when trying to start or restart the service, post some screenshots of any errors
