Windows 8 Activation Error 0XC0000022 (Access Denied) RRS feed

  • Question

  • After experiencing problems during an automatic windows update of windows 8 I ran a system "refresh" which restored factory settings. However, now my windows won't update, giving me Activation Error 0XC0000022 (Access Denied). Additionally, when windows tried to automatically update, it spends a very long time doing so, then says the update failed, and spends a very long time uninstalling the update. I cannot stop this update from happening and it says it will happen in "1 more day."

    How can I activate my copy of windows and make sure windows is able to update properly?

    Thank you.
