My computer says the diagnostics policy service is not running?
My toshiba laptop has been telling me my anti virus cannot be run when I scroll over the wireless icon it says I am connected but only through limited connection, meaning I can't get onto the internet at all. I didn't shut anything off on my computer so if anyone knows how to get this "diagnostics policy service" to run again it would be great!

Type Services.msc in the start Search box. Scroll down to Diagnostic Policy. Right-click, choose Properties and set it to Automatic. If it's already set that way, then Start the service.

Go into the control panel \ Administrative Tools \ Services. Scroll to diagnostics policy service and make sure it's started and set to Automatic.

Try System Restore, bring it to a point prior to this issue. Do the restore in safe mode. Tap F8 on bootup and select safe mode.

Some suggest uninstalling your network adapter driver, rebooting and letting Windows find the driver.
