The first character of path output is: ;
remove the first semicolon.
At the and of path is ; %SystemRoot%\system32
remove the space after ;

Now open a new command prompt and it should work

To do that, right-click on My Computer, then select Properties, then Advanced system settings. On the Properties dialog select Environment Variables. In the System variables box, scroll until you find the PATH variable then select it and click on the Edit button. Add (don't replace) this to what exists there already: %SystemRoot%\system32 (if appending to the end of the existing PATH make sure you put a semicolon ; in to seperate the values).
You added
Code:
 
; %SystemRoot%\system32
instead of
;%SystemRoot%\system32
remove that extra space!
