Hi, Joe here. I am new to this community and I am hoping that I can get some help to correct a mistake I made. A while back i tried to make a server for Minecraft (a pc game) and messed with my environment variables and PATH's in the process. Now command prompt cannot recoginze most commands I type in (such as ping, help, ipconfig). I don't have any system restores that date back to before I messed this up. I would be very happy if someone could help me in correcting my problem since I don't have enough knowledge of this to fix it. Here are some screenshots for more information.

 

                   Thank you! And please help me! :D

Sounds like the PATH environmental variable is messed up. It's missing

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;

 

Add that back to PATH and all should be okay.

Thank you so much! It appears to be working just fine now. I didn't think the solution would be so simple, I wasn't sure how to go about this because I know that every computer starts to become unique in how it runs and looks for things as individuals install and uninstall software numerous times. Again thank you so much Ztruker! Sincerely, Joe.
