CMD tab completion stopped working

I am running Win 7 and I checked the registry key: CompletionChar and PathCompletionChar, they are both set to 26, I've also tried changing it to 9. None of it works.

When I type in the command prompt and hit tab, it just tabs over like it's in a word doc...

Thanks for the help!

Right-click on the title bar for the command prompt > Defaults > Options make sure all checkboxes in "Edit Options" are checked. Then restart the command prompt...see if that helps.
