My vu-meters have reappeared: sing allélujah :)

Strangely it’s fully working now.

They weren’t poping up at all. Too bad I really can’t remember what i tweaked on my computer during the last time it didn’t worked and today. Sorry chaps!
So it seems like a conflict…
All i can remember is that I did:

a java update
my antivirus found a few bad things during a deep scan of the system…all removed now.
…not really related…
Maybe a few w7 updates as well.
No new drivers installed or whatever.
