In my case, I actually did enable secure boot in the BIOS, and tried the factory reset of the BIOS, and nothing. At this point I don't even care about "fixing" it by refreshing windows, I'd rather just have something that makes the message go away. Any thoughts?

Microsoft released an Update to remove the message:

Update removes the "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured correctly" watermark in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

Download and install it.
