You could try a system restore to an earlier time. Not sure if that restores environment variables or not but it's worth a try.

Here is the Path on my Win 7 system: PATH=C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v 1.0\;C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Shared

You could use it as starting point.

these .dll's you say you are missing? is this stopping you from the system restore? is that what you meant? that may be a larger problem if true.
