Ghost drivers item in PCAdvisor magazine

  Brighstone 16:57 19 Dec 2009

In the February 2010 edition of PCAdvisor there was an item entitled, "Get Rid of Ghost Drivers" which gave the command prompt "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 a display all services and drivers that load" minus the quote marks. The prompt, however, is not recognised. Has the quote been misprinted or am I doing something wrong?

You are using it on Windows 2000?

I am using XP Home. Have enabled "show hidden devices" in "view" in device manager but doesn't help.
