Q: Windows 7 Snipping Tool Error This thread is locked from future replies

I've a valid copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and I've been using the Snipping Tool for 2 years and now it doesn't work anymore. When I click it it shows a blank dialogue box. I've searched a bit and all the solutions included taking a look at Programs and Features because the Tablet PC Components might be disabled, however mine was activated, so I have no idea of what's going on.
Any suggestions are welcome.

b. Type ‘Windows features’ in search option and select from the list.
c. Scroll down the list and uncheck the option “Tablet pc components”.
d. Click on ‘OK’.
e. Restart the computer.
 
Now check the same option and see if it helps.

I also suggest you to try System File Checker (SFC scan) on the computer and check if it helps.
