windows features empty

Hello,

I have a small problem, its it my windows features that shows as empty for me.

And it seems i can

I have been looking and i found this.The "Windows Features" dialog box is empty in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or you receive an error message that includes the following code when you try to use Windows Update: "0x80073712"

I did method 1, when it was done it says nothing was missing.

----
I run always under Administrator.
Nothing special i installed on my pc or cleaned.

It does say that you could contact support if you are unable to fix it with those 2 steps.

If not, a repair install will work.
