    "Service Host: Diagnostic Policy Service" using almost 50% of CPU

    Service Host: Diagnostic Policy Service using almost 50% of CPU according to task manager. Wouldn't really care if it didn't seem to lock up my desk top for minutes at just the wrong time. Can I, or better yet, should I turn this off? New to forum, hope this appropriate place for question.

    Hi Captmatt.

    Don't think I would be disabling, might be better to try and find out why it is so high.

    Have you done any diagnostic work, sfc /scannow, checking drives for errors, checking device manager for errors, see if anything is being reported in Reliability history.

    Could you tell us about your machine, when the problem started etc.
