blank/empty list in "turn windows features on or off"

As the title suggests, every time I open "turn windows features on or off" the box stays blank no matter how long I wait. I have tried several things and have searched for quite a long time for solutions, but to no avail. The things i've tried include; everything in the following - FIX Blank or Empty List in Vista Turn Windows Features On or Off (OptionalFeatures.exe), sfc /scannow, reg delete HKLM\COMPONENTS /v StoreDirty, and making sure Windows Modules Installer is running and set to manual. I'd appreciate any help and suggestions, thanks!

I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, but this laptop didn't come with a windows install disk.
