How to Fix 0xC0000022 Error

Error 0xC0000022 is one of those errors that are hard to understand because it doesn’t tell us what went wrong. This error code usually appears when Windows tries to access a file that isn’t there anymore. In most cases, this happens because someone deleted the file accidentally. However, sometimes, this error can occur even though no files have been removed.

In either case, we recommend trying the following steps to fix this problem.

1. Restart Your Computer

If you’re having trouble accessing a specific file, restarting your computer might help. When you boot up again, Windows will look for the missing file and attempt to repair itself.

2. Delete Temporary Files

If you’ve recently installed a program, you might find temporary files left behind. Deleting these files can help solve some problems. To do this, open File Explorer and navigate to %AppData%\Temp\. You’ll see a folder named after the current date. Inside this folder, you’ll find subfolders named after each day. These folders contain temporary files generated by programs like Microsoft Office.

3. Run Disk Cleanup

Solution #1: Check Software Protection Service.

This article explains how to check whether the Windows 10 operating system is protected by Microsoft Defender Security Center. If it is, the problem could be caused by one of the following reasons:
