i don't know why but after a reboot i wasn't seeing the windows partition in the finder window...
so i tried to mount it via disk utility but it gave this error:
The disk “.Windows” can't be activated.
use S.O.S. on the disk and retry.
i've even tried to load msdosfs.kext trought terminal
and this is the result:
Requesting load of /System/Library/Extensions/msdosfs.kext.
/System/Library/Extensions/msdosfs.kext failed to load - (ipc/mig) server died; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).

Try to format a flash drive with NTFS (you can't do this from OS X though, boot into Windows or use another Windows PC) then FAT32. In both instances, check that you can mount the flash drive successfully on OS X and read and write from/to it (of course you will not be able to write anything to it when its formatted with NTFS). This will rule out driver issues or other problems with OS X itself.
Can you boot Windows? If you can, then open an elevated command prompt (click start, type cmd.exe in the search box, right-click cmd.exe, click run as Administrator) and enter chkdsk /r. You'll see a message saying the drive is locked and that chkdsk will run on next reboot. Reboot and let chkdsk do its thing. This may take a while, depending on the size and speed of your drive, as well as the number of files on it.

I've never seen anything like this before and I don't know what to suggest, if you were running 10.8.2 I'd suggest updating to 10.8.3 using the full combo update, but you're on 10.8.3 already.
Maybe run console.app and look for clues in system.log, if there are any hints that some kernel extensions have become corrupt somehow you can easily replace them with fresh ones from the full 10.8.3 installation package from the app store, or you can pull them from the 10.8.3 combo update - either manually or by using a neat tool called Pacifist (google it).
If you can't fix it by replacing kernel extensions or frameworks and you can't find any help with this elsewhere then I'd say..reinstall.

I'm having the same issues: could you guys provide me links for it?
P.S.: found the files, installed and solved the issue. Thank you very much, Derty: this has been haunting me for a couple of months already. Oddly, i couldn't find any related thread in Insanelymac using the local search tool, and found this thread on Google.
P.P.S.: Ermac, is Enoch safe now?
P.P.P.S.: that solved my strange network issues as well: i couldn't also connect to other computers in the same network.
