I've seen something like this before. Typically, the issue has to do with permissions being out of whack. There are a few different ways to go about it.

The first is..

1. Open a command prompt and enter secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

or you could use Windows Repair
