You need to modify your PATH environment variable to at least include: %SystemRoot%\system32

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).
