See if list shows while you are in Windows Safe-Mode.

How long do you give it? Depending on the size of the list it can take a couple of minutes to populate.

I had the same problem. On other forums, I have seen that the
list populated correctly after disconnecting all external drives.

However, what worked for me was to run chkdsk /f on my c:
drive. This program fixes errors in the file structure on the
disk. Possibly, those external disks that other people used
simply had file structure errors as well. It would probably be
advisable to use this tool to fix any file system errors on all

For more information on how to use the disk repair tool,
please look at the following Microsoft support page:
