Re: Deleted PATH in Environment Variables by mistake.



Inserting the following seemed to do the trick:

C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem

A couple of other programs needed to be re-added and they work now as well.
It wasn't what I would call an 'easy fix', however.

Thanks for the help.
