    I'm not sure about how to deal with this type of error (especially in Windows 8!) so I'm going to ask for help.
    Alright, thanks!

    Not sure what messed up in my system as I have never touched anything since purchase.

    Try this.

    Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command....

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    (note the spaces!)

    wait until it's complete, then reboot, and try SFC again.
    post the new CBS.log file.

    This is great, the sfc /scannow got to 100% without being interrupted this time!

    Attached is the CBS.log.

    Great! - there's nothing apparently wrong with the SFC results, and the previous errors haven't recurred.

    What happens when you attempt activation now?

    I still get the same error message: 0xC0000022 Access Denied.

    Is the inability to activate due to sppsvc.exe not being able to be started? I just can't get sppsvc.exe to start, it keeps telling me Error 5: Access is denied.

    OK - let's look at some permissions things, then....

    Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands...

    ICALCS C:\Windows\system32\sppsvc.* /t
    DIR C:\Windows\system32\sppsvc.* /s

    post the results.

    At least the issue with sfc /scannow was fixed and it can complete a minor problem solved.

    Hello ianwongjk,

    Please understand that I am offering no solutions because you already have a big gun working with you; however, I am really curious to know why you didn't just try a clean install again because you stated the installation was "fairly new." Moreover, why did you try to activate the installation via an alternative method? Was it because the traditional "activate while online" option was never made available? It just seems like you are spending a ton of time trying to fix this issue when you could have already done a clean install 10 times over. Again, not trying to interfere but I am just trying to understand the circumstances behind your decision. Thanks.

    Well I am unable to do a clean install since the Windows 8 came pre-installed with the computer I purchased. I don't have the Windows 8 installation CD but I was able to obtain the product key using Belarc Advisor. Occasionally, the blue screen would pop up saying "Activate Windows" and I try clicking on Activate Now, but it doesn't work. As a result I'm trying to activate it through slui.exe and it was then that I came across this issue. I cannot activate by phone as well since no numbers appear in the blanks and I get the same error message. I'm fairly certain it has to do with some permissions that are messed up, but I have no idea why, considering I have never messed with them.

    OK, thanks for that understandable explanation. However, since the product key is embedded in the BIOS, I wouldn't trust Belarc Advisor to reveal the true key and that may just be your issue here. So, with that said, can anyone confirm my suspicion that the good old Belarc Advisor is no longer a reliable source and/or confirm that it still works for that intention?
