    Undo swapon NTFS partition

    I am dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu and I accidentally did swapon on my windows NTFS partition. What do I do to resolve this? Swapoff -a doesn't seem to work.



    fdisk -l

    reboot?
    clarify "doesn't seem to work" please.

    I mean that gparted still indicates that dev/sda2 is of the fily system type 'linux swap'. It was originally NTFS and where WIndows lived, which now refuses to boot.
