Both install succesfullly? If so reboot to linux and try access sda3 and sda2 again.
Other than above outputs...output for other commands are attached...take a look:

sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs
but you did
sudo apt-get ntfsprogs

But I assume it was installed as well(?)

What is sda2? Any idea what is/was on that partition?
Can you access sda3 now?

Code:
 
sudo  mount  -t  ntfs-3g   /dev/sda3   /media/external
What happens? Can you browse files on it now?

To unmount it:
Code:
 
sudo  umount  /dev/sda3

If all else fails, what always works is to Mark Partition Active the Win7 or it's 100 mb System Reserved partition Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

You can then install EasyBCD to add Linus to a Windows Dual Boot menu as suggested in Where to install ubuntu in my system?

mkdir /media/external

Do that first, so prior to mounting it.
Anyway forget linux for now... try the win7 way as Greg told you

Hey now it doesn't show error in sda3 after mounting sda3 to external!! I tried to boot to Windows again via GRUB, it showed the same 0xc000000f error and when I came back to ubuntu there was the error sign again...I have post some more screenshots that might be relevant:

How do you do that in Ubuntu? Your link illustrates how to Mark Partition Active in Windows 7 only...
