      I had a random look at an issue from 2010/10/28 (Issue 263).  In Fred Langa’s article”What to do when a patch won’t install”, at one point he recommends typing the following into a command prompt window:

      reg delete HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftSQMClient WindowsDisabledSessions /va /f

      Note that there are no backslashes.  This is followed by a figure showing the command prompt after this has been typed in – which does show the backslashes.  I presume that the missing backslashes is some kind of porting problem from the original ??

        There would likely have been some porting issues, yes.

        Thanks for the report. I’ve fixed the backslashes.

        I expect that we’ll have plenty of problems like this. Let me know and I’ll give them a whack.

      Please Woody don’t whack them. Nobody needs to die. It’s not a life-or-death situation. Just slash them a bit. But do it kindly.

        Er…. as in “whack a mole” … 🙂

        I’ll never forget the time I used the phrase “there are many ways to skin a cat” and a lady took me to task for torturing pets.
