Windows 8 Activation Error 0XC0000022 (Access Denied)


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 activate, 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 try again in "1 more day."

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

Thank you.


Furthermore, the Diagnostic tool tells me the following:
