Get 1079 error and can not start Diagnostics Policy Service
Welcome to the Forum.
Is there a particular Service you are attempting to start when this error is triggered?
1079 is in essence implying a Service is attempting to start with Local System authority, when in fact it needs to be started by NT Authority/LocalService which is one step up the hierarchy chain in terms of privileges.
If it is a particular service you ought to be able to be able to Start > Run > services.msc then locate the Service and open its properties and select its Log on tab and manually change from Local System to NT Authority\LocalService, then <optionally> include password access or not - <your preference>
Separate names with a comma.
