n most cases, the error code 0xC0000022 is associated with the Software Protection Service, a critical Windows system service that’s responsible for managing the download, installation, and enforcement of digital licenses for Windows operating systems and most of its applications. So, when you encounter Windows 10 Activation Error 0xC0000022, it means that the Software Protection Service is corrupted, missing, or damaged. In other words, the activation error 0xC0000022 means that the Software Protection Service has stopped working.

If you're getting an "Access denied" error, left-click on the Windows Start button, type in Services, wait until it shows you the cog icon for the application, and then click on Run as administrator. This should give you the required rights to start the service. It should be set to Automatic (delayed start).
