I get this error whenever I try to use the net diagnostic wizard.
I attempted to start the service manually from the services windows and receive another message that says
"The diagnostic policy service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."
I attempted the registry fix suggested in this forum of adding "NT services\mpssvc" and granting full control and read permissions with no luck, the error still comes up .
I tried restoring to a previous date when the diagnostics did work and still the problem was not fixed.
Please advise before I go completely bald from pulling my hair out trying to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance
