If you right click the command prompt and click Properties, do you get the following screen exactly as mine?

Baffling. Have you at any time used a registry cleaner on your system?

Try restarting your computer first to see if it applies the environment path. If that does not work, backup the current registry, and then revert to the oldest version you have in Safe Mode. That may cause problems with software installed since then, but it will at least be a way to test whether it is registry related. You can revert back to the current registry afterward through Safe Mode again.

Alright, found something that might work. Start Menu -> Type sysdm.cpl into the Search programs and files (do not hit enter) -> right click sysdm.cpl and select Run as administrator -> Go to Advanced -> Click Environment Variables... -> Double click Path from the System Variables list (after scrolling down) -> Delete everything in the box Variable Value:, and hit OK. Hit OK again to close Environment Variables to reset the Path to nothing. Now, click Environment Variables... again. Double click Path in System Variables (after scrolling down again) -> Paste the following into the path Variable Value.

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32;%SYSTEMROOT%;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\bin\x86_64;C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\bin\x86;C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\9.0\DLLShared\;"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin"

And hit OK. Hit OK again to set the path. Start the command prompt and see if it now works.
