I just tried #39, and when I tried to restart something screwed up so badly that it had to do a startup repair and a system restore.

#39 just changes 1 value in registry!

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage]
"OEMCP"="437"

What's your OEMCP value now?

change the ACP value from 949 to 1252 . See #35 . Reboot. Does \ work as expected now in windows?
BTW system restore is enough to revert the changes
