accidentally deleted PATH variable

Not sure if this is the right forum, I don't see any forum for troubleshooting.

I was trying to edit my PATH environment variable and accidentally deleted it. Is there any way to recover it? If not, is there anyone out there who can tell me what the default path variable should be? I'm afraid to turn off my computer without fixing this as I'm not sure if it will be able to boot up again.

Maybe this helps you?
