The Diagnostic Service Host service failed to start. Event ID 7000

0
August 17, 2011

Hello,

We are currently in the process of rolling out Windows 7, our entire test machines at the moment have the same issue where the event log is being spammed every second with the following error.

The Diagnostic Service Host service failed to start due to the following error:

A privilege that the service requires to function properly does not exist in the service account configuration. You may use the Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in (services.msc) and the Local Security Settings MMC snap-in (secpol.msc) to view the service configuration and the account configuration.

I have followed other posts where it suggests changing Group Policy for profile system performance and set Administrators and NT Service\WdiServiceHost. However this has not resolved the issue ? I am not sure if the GP change I have made has had any affect as when looking at the Diagnostic Service Host properties I can see Log On is still set as Local Service - should this not reflect the names in the GP change? Any help will be appreciated as the logs are getting pretty big now.

Problem was caused by non microsoft software that is running at startup....it could be your security software.

This time while doing clean boot on the another computer...just disable all startup ..and check whether u the error...reboot is required.

If u get the error then go to services tab..put a check on hide all microsoft services...and then select 5 non microsoft service and disable them.

Long process but seems like the only way to find out the faulty non microsoft app.

For the "Diagnostic Policy Service" service, the issue may occur when the account Trustedinstaller is missing the permissions for the key below:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\

CurrentCon

trolSet\Se

rvices\DPS

\Parameter

s

permission needed: Full Control, Read

Give full permission to parameters key.

Try clean boot and check whether u get any error

Clean boot process

Start-type - msconfig- click on startup tab- click disable all...then click services tab- put a check on hide all microsoft services ...and then click disable all....click ok and then restart the computer in normal mode.

If everything works fine in clean boot then enable five startup items and services at a time to find the faulty software.

Did you use GP to specify different credentials?

I have tried msconfig as suggested and after disabling and then going through enabling them all again the issue seems to have resolved, not sure how I could replicate this fix to the rest of our machines on the network? or what would have been the issue in the first place

Group Policy is set to what the above link suggests.
