Hello everyone. I am having a problem on a 32-bit home premium desktop and I first noticed it when it was unable to connect to the internet. I thought it was the network adaptor until testing it with another machine. The computer is unable to detect any networks. When I click on the “diagnose why Windows cant find any networks” link Im told “Network Diagnostics cannot run because the diagnostic policy service is not running. There is a tab that says “click to open service control manager /you will need to manually start the diagnostic policy service. Once this service is started you can run network diagnostics.” Clicking this will prompt me to open an mmc.exe file. When I do it opens a window listing services. I right-click diagnostic policy service properties local computer and set the startup type to manual. But it always leads to another service that cannot be started like windows wireless service, security center service... audio service says it cannot be turned on. even system restore does work.. "system restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on the system. The volume shadow copy service used by system restore is not working.” I've run AVG and it detects nothing amiss.. ugh. Does this seem familiar to anyone? Where should I start?
