    I cannot connect to the Internet with my computer.

    I have a 2nd computer that connects in my house, so I know that my wifi works, and my internet
    provider is working at my location.

    On my computer I did run some Windows Network Diagnostics and I did get this message:

    "The remaining repairs require administrator permissions"

    Problems found
    The Diagnostics Policy Service is not running
    -> Try these repairs as an administrator...etc.

    What version of Windows is this ?

    Are you signed in using an admin account while trying the diagnostics ?
