Windows Features blank

I have a Windows 7 Pro 64bit PC which won't display any entries in the Windows Features (Turn Windows Features on or off) box. I have tried a number of suggestions on the Internet which include:
* sfc /scannow
* Boot from Windows Repair disc and run repair
* Install System Update Readiness Tool
* DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
* reg delete HKLM\COMPONENTS /v StoreDirty
* Verify that the Windows Modules Installer service is running and Automatic

I can't think of anything else.
Any suggestions appreciated.

After many hours of laboriously deleting registry entries I now have a populated Windows Features window. There was probably a quicker method as indicated in Ramin's article but I didn't fancy messing with the Registry permissions so I used Registrar Registry Manager to delete each one and that seemed to override any permissions restrictions.
Anyway, all done now so thanks Ramin.
