Invalid path in environment variables. Safe to delete?

Hi. Is it safe to delete the entry shown? I don't see a folder anywhere on C: (windows partition) named BVTBin even with super-hidden files shown.

I'm asking because I don't understand why the entry exists.

Yes it's safe to delete. BVT's are what they call Build Verification Tests.

How did you get this entry? From what DVD did you install win7?

Thanks

Thanks very much for confirming that it's okay to remove it.

I had an OEM install of Windows 7 but some time ago I deleted all partitions and created a new one. Then I clean installed Windows 7 by downloading the iso from Digital River and installed from USB.
