Please start an elevated command prompt on your PC, and type the command
rmdir /s /q C:\WINDOWS
There are no special characters here, so no possibility of "automatic expansion", so this is bound to be completely safe.
Can you not see that danger is unrelated to the existence of globbing? Danger is a result of people not knowing what the commands they type do.
 To anyone following along who isn't familiar with the command line, DON'T TRY THIS - IT WILL WRECK YOUR PC!
