What happens if you try from within the windows folder? Control
Panel|System|Advanced|Environment Variables|System Variables and make sure
that "Path" has
at least somewhere in the string.

Also check that "Path" found at
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
is a type Reg_Expand_Sz string and not type Reg_Sz
