Try this
1. Click Start, click Run, and then type CMD.
2. At the prompt, type REGSVR32 APPWIZ.CPL.
If that doesn't work, try the rest of the solution here

Hi, had this exact same problem today with a clients machine.
Only way I could fix it was to create another user account with administrator rights.
It seems the current user account was corrupt.
Do you also get errors when you open Windows Explorer and click on the plus next the C:?
