Windows 7 64bit Pro. Diagnostic Policy Service, Error 5: Access is Denied
Posted on 2011-10-10
I had my Laptop die last week so replaced it and ran a full restore from a very recent Shadow Protect backup.
All drivers are updated and working but the service Diagnostic Policy Service refuses to start and gives a Error 5: Access is Denied. This is preventing me from using the LAN and WiFi connection only.
I have tried many of the suggestions contained in EE including booting from install disk and running Windows Repair. Also ran sfc /scannow and no errors reported. Tried changing service to use admin account, no change, now back to Local Service.
I do not wish to have to reinstall Windows so open to sensible suggestions please :-)
