If I create a venv on Windows called "py3" then py3/Scripts/Activate.ps1 defines the prompt to be

    function prompt {
        Write-Host -NoNewline -ForegroundColor Green [(py3) ]
        _OLD_VIRTUAL_PROMPT
    }

However this prompt function does not work properly, and running

    Write-Host -NoNewline -ForegroundColor Green [(py3) ]

on its own produces an error because of the lack of quotes around (py3).  Adding quotes as shown in the patch seems to fix the problem.
