Windows 7: "an error occurred not all features were successfully changed"

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
"an error occurred not all features were successfully changed"

I am unable to change any windows features whatsoever! Every time I try, I get the following error message, "an error occurred not all features were successfully changed" It tells me to restart my computer. After restart, I find out that nothing has been changed at all! Games are still checked, Internet Explorer 11 is still unchecked, Indexing service is still unchecked, and Windows Gadget Platform is still checked. when I unchecked those that I mentioned where checked and vice versa. I Googled the problem but only outdated Windows Vista results showed up in Google. There is nothing regarding this problem in Windows 7. This does this error message every time I try to change anything. sfc /scannow says "no integrity violations found" so that is not the problem.

Any ideas on what the problem may be and how do I fix this?

Hi Sylveon,
You sure seem to have had some problems lately.
Do you have the install media,(hope it wasn't a torrent), that comp didn't come with Ultimate, W8 with d/g rights to 7 pro
I believe your best bet is a repair install.
