0xC004F012 after "disk repair"

    Ok, so I'm getting the same error as the guy in the topic.. Error 5, access denied. The run type (or whatever - I have a Polish version of the OS) says "Automatic (delayed start, freed/released ((?)) start).

    Does that mean that the dreaded HDD formatting is my last resort?

    No if you have a restore point prior to the deactivation, you can do that but needs to be started from the install media via the repair thingy.

    Restore point? Do these set up automatically? I don't think I ever enabled one.

    Anyway, I've been trying to see if I can do a registry fix suggested somewhere here: Solved SPPSVC service not running as well as activating Windows, but I can't find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\spldr in my registry at all... Is this even applicable to Win 8?

    I only have a "sppsvc" folder

    You can check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sppsvc instead

    Have you checked for a restore point? Run rstrui.exe.

    I tried a restore, didn't help - the restore point was too late...

    I posted a screenshot in my previous comment with the status of my sppsvc registry - could you tell me which item am I supposed to change?

    It's not the actual reg key that's the issue, rather the permissions granted to each component that is confusing Active directory.

    Did you try the restore from the setup disk?

    Anyway check the setup of each of these components:

    sppsvc.exe:
    Click image for larger version

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sppsvc
    Click image for larger version


    Software Protection service: (The same applies to Remote Procedure Call service, which must be running)
    Click image for larger version

    Software Protection scheduled task:

    Click image for larger version

    If those check out..

    Run command prompt as Administrator and enter the following:

    cd %windir%\System32\spp\store\2.0
    rename tokens.dat tokens.bak
    cd %windir%\system32
    net start sppsvc
    slui.exe

    How do you access the SvcRestartTask? Through the Task Scheduler? I did Google it but can't find anything. Pardon my ignorance but I've never done that before. And my Polish version of the OS doesn't help.

    And what do you mean a restore from the setup disk? The Windows installer CD? I did try the repair function. Does the restore there utilize different restore points than those stored on your HDD?

    Search Task Scheduler - expand each node and scroll down to SoftwareProtectionPlatform...

    Only restore points are on the HDD.. as you have run it from the CD, perhaps you are SOL

    I have been down this road with permissions changes - was hoping you would have more luck...

    I set the task to run on highest priority and constantly. Rebooted the PC and the system performed HDD autorepair again. I don't even know if this is related, I don't know if it's just a coincidence, but what I know is that I'm gonna have to do a f****g disk formatting this weekend.

    Thanks Microsoft.

    Unfortunately that would be best.. with their clamp down on piracy they have made WAT extremely complicated - just remember to do a backup once all apps etc installed. Good luck - let us know how it goes...
