Hi Roice,

Error 0xC0000022 indicates that there's an issue with access rights and it can occur if the Software Protection Service is stopped or damaged.

Follow these steps.
a. Press Windows logo key + R, type services.msc.

b. Search for Software Protection.  Check the current status of the service. If you want to make changes, you can do it by opening it.

c. Go to the General tab.  You can Start or Stop the Startup type of the Software Protection services from the general tab.

Also, run the System File Checker scan on the computer.  This tool scans for missing or corrupted system files and repairs them.
