Empty Regional Settings

I am in need of changing my regional settings however when I open the regional options every setting you can change is empty.

That means the "your locale (location)" , "sorting order", and "set default bars" shows nothing, not even a single language.
 I would rather not format the harddisk since it  is not my computer and there are some really important files on it . Usually I just make a backup however the person who knows what to save cannot be contacted at the moment.
Worse it have to be done to day since he is leaving for another country later this afternoon

Thank you all in advance.

Check the registry for those settings...
Start/Run/Regedit
Navigate to Hkey_Current_User\Control Panel\International
Are there any settings here?  
You might also try exporting this key from a working machine and importing it into this one...

and everything is as it should be.
