Double backslash are required here, as in :

install.packages(repos=NULL, pkgs='C:\\Documents and Settings\\Desktop\\snow_0.2-1.tar.gz', type='source',lib = 'c:/program files/r/rw2010/library/')

(but the tools are required if you want to build from source on windows, so that may not solve the problem)
