So this one is the one you're referring to, I think:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/Cold_Fusion_Markup_Language/Q_27302251.html

So maybe you want:
ReReplace(myString, '([<=("/\\\b\f\n\r\t]|\\u[a-fA-F0-9]{4})', '\\\1', 'ALL')

I've added the 3 characters <=( to the pattern. If that's not what you want, you might need to provide a more detailed explanation?

Adding a single quote to the pattern:
ReReplace(myString, '([\'<=("/\\\b\f\n\r\t]|\\u[a-fA-F0-9]{4})', '\\\1', 'ALL')

I just copied that from the previous question. I believe the \\\1 refers to the text captured from within the () brackets in the pattern for use as the replacement, which is all of the captured text; it actually seems to make the statement completely useless as it just puts back what it matched!

One of the other suggestions used an empty string as the replacement, which means the text captured by the pattern would be removed from the string. That is more likely to be what you want I think!

ReReplace(myString, '([\'<=("/\\\b\f\n\r\t]|\\u[a-fA-F0-9]{4})', '', 'ALL')
