Comment(by asgerpetersen):

 Replying to [comment:9 jef]:
 > Well, it might have helped if the problem was caused by a (overly long)
 corrupted path. It might still be caused by some unexpected (danish?)
 characters in @PATH at .

 Here is my path:

 C:\Users\asi>set path
 indows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files
 m\;C:\Program Files\ActivIdentity\ActivClient\;C:\Program Files
 ity\ActivClient\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-
 :\App\Bin\;C:\App\SysInternals\;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_31\bin

 I guess the difference is with findstr.

 It behaves differently on my XP and on my Win7 machines.
 This command

 findstr /i /r /c:^"^^\"[a-zA-Z]:[\\/][^\\/]"

 crashes findstr on Win7 but it doesnt on XP
