Diagnostic Policy Service cannot be started

I've searched the forum but most error text is different. Mine is simple.. It says
Windows cannot start Diagnostic Policy Service on this local computer.

Error: 5 Access is denied
I've tried multiple things however I cant get it fixed..
I tried system restore but system restore took 4 days and SURPRISINGLY, the restore failed..

I am planning to do system image restore.. Any help will be appreciated.. And oh, help me about the system restore too
