mod_rewrite not working

I am running Apache 2.2.10 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with PHP 5.2.6 running also. I have attached the httpd.conf file as a reference. I can't seem to get the mod_rewrite to work. I am doing the mod_rewrite test located at http://www.wallpaperama.com/forums/how-to-test-check-if-mod-rewrite-is-enabled-t40.html to check if mod_rewrite is working, and it's not. Is there anything I may not know about the inter-mingling of the 3 different softwares I have listed that been my current configuration invalid?? Is there anything that I have not done that I need to do to properly enable and turn on mod_rewrite??

  # This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
  # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
  # See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2> for detailed information.
  # In particular, see
  # URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html
  # for a discussion of each configuration directive.
  # 
  # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
  # what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
  # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
  # 
  # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
  # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
  # server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
  # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
  # with ServerRoot set to "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2" will be interpreted by the
  # server as "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/logs/foo.log".
  # 
  # NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes
  # instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").
  # If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which httpd.exe is located
  # will be used by default.  It is recommended that you always supply
  # an explicit drive letter in absolute paths to avoid confusion.
  # 
  # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
  # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
  # 
  # Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point

# ServerRoot "at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive"
# at a local disk.  If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple
# httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.
