Sorry, but stripping the / and \ characters from the search strings means that it is not possible to search for pathnames (for example, c:\winnt, or /var/log), windows registry keys, and a bunch of other technical terms that use these characters legitimately.

Is there a way to work around this problem, for example, by using some escaping characters?
