I'm sure I've inadvertently done something to my system to cause this error message to come up when I try to diagnose problems with a wireless connection.I can connect via wireless but sometimes I have a problem in a weak signal area. When I try to "troubleshoot" everything works as it should except I eventually get the msg"The diagnostic policy service is not running" Can I cure this without a total windows 7 re-install? Sorry if there are already answers to this problem on here.... I looked but couldn't find the topic. Thanks in advance from A bear of little brain!!

you can see if this helps

I suggest that you try the below methods to fix this issue.
Method 1:
Make sure that the following services are started.
1. Diagnostic policy
2. Diagnostic Service
3. Diagnostic system host.
Follow the below steps:
a. Click on start, type services.msc in the Services Window.
b. Look for the above services, Right click on the services, check if the startup type is set to ‘Automatic’.
Method 2:
Run System File checker tool on your computer.
Running the System File Checker…
a. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.
b. Click Continue or supply Administrator credentials if prompted.
c. In the Command Prompt window type the following, and press Enter:
sfc /scannow
d. You should see the following on-screen messages:
Beginning the system scan. This process will take some time.
Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification % complete.
e. Once the scan has completed you will receive an onscreen message resembling one of the following:
…found no integrity violations
…found corruption but repaired it
…found corruption that it could not repair.
