"Turn Windows features on or off" not working

When I click on turn window features on or off, a new window opens. It says "Please Wait". Then nothing comes finally. I am left with a blank white window. I cannot turn any features on or off. I ran the command Sfc /scannow in cmd with administrative privilage. But I am in vein.
