    Deleted Path variable on system environment, any help?

    If someone was to copy the variables and I just re-added them myself would that work or would I have to do a system restore?

    If they can be simply added by me could someone copy them here?

    Thanks for any help

    Hi there!

    System Restore would be a good idea. I have post them but which one you altered?

    Sorry, it should have read "Path" have changed the topic header since.

    It's only path, was trying to fix a java problem and deleted them

    the PATH variable is different for each system. It depends on what you have installed and if it modified the PATH or not.

    The basic PATH should start with: C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;

    Mine starts with: C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;

    then has other stuff after that.

    A System Restore will fix this as Capt.Jack said.
