    it's codepage 949 isn't it? See this Windows Codepage 949
    See character 005c in the table!
    Searching in Unicode character names for 005C it should be the backslash.

    The command prompt uses the font built in the codepage. We found it!!!

    Regedit, goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage
    Post the pane on the right side. First scroll down so I can see ACP, OEMCP and OEMHAL

    In registry goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Nls\CodePage and change OEMCP from 949 to 437

    Reboot machine, open command prompt.
    Code:
    chcp
    codepage is indeed 437 now? \ displays fine?

    It says this. Any guesses why?
    EDIT: I changed users and the regedit changed fine, but it's still coming up as 949 on the command prompt.

    Save this attachment and doublick on it. Import in registry please. Works? OEMCP value = 437 now? Reboot.
    Command prompt displays \ fine now?
