Diagnostic Policy Service is a Win32 service. In Windows 10 it is starting automatically when the operating system starts. Then the Diagnostic Policy Service is running as NT AUTHORITY\LocalService in a shared process of svchost.exe along with other services. If Diagnostic Policy Service fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the DPS service has failed to start due to the error.
