Mistakenly changed PATH in the Environment Variables

HP Recommended
500B
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I mistakenly changed the PATH variable to that for my new JDK that was installed yesterday. And I don't remember the former path. Can anyone tell me what it should be? So far, I found it should start with 

C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;, but there's more that should be on the end I believe. Hope someone can assist today.

I will repeat: 

 

    uninstall JDK. 

   Reboot. 

   Check that references in %PATH% no longer reference Java and/or JDK.

   Reinstall JDK. 

  

That  should update %PATH% to enable applications to be executed.

At a command-line prompt, enter:   echo  %PATH%    and press  ENTER

 

to see:


C:\Windows\system32;
C:\Windows;
C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;

 

[I have "split" the result after each "semi-colon", for legibility, on this forum.]

 

Obviously, I don't have Java installed.

 

 

Additionally, ONLY on my system, I have:

 

C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\OpenCL SDK\2.0\bin\x86;
C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\OpenCL SDK\2.0\bin\x64;

 

C:\Program Files\ooRexx;

 

because I have installed other software.

 

 

Have you trying uninstalling that JDK, and reinstalling it?

I have correctecd the PATH error. Found the solution online through Java.com & Computerhope.com. But the emulator is still not functioning properly. Where can I get live help? Where I can share my screen? I can't keep waiting for email responses. I'm losing a lot of time.
