Yes, it was activated.

Yours does the trick, I wonder why it was happened. Does "Compatibility mode" for a program cause this? I had a program which let me investigate the Linux ext3 partitions (read and write). It wasn't running under Windows 7 64-bit, so I installed it with compatibility mode as Windows XP SP3. Does this cause this?

Best regards.
Did you read the link I posted? If you did you would have saw that the command you said fixed your issue was listed in the second post.
