The copy in ..........Windows/$ServicePackUninstall$ was likely a backup copy that was put there when you updated Windows at some point.
Well, I've learned something new today - that's one of the reasons that I like this place!
. I assumed that this was an issue with the PATH statement in the Environmental Variables - but it wasn't in mine either. A bit of research revealed that the path to certain apps is stored in the registry.
So, I exported this key from my registry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Copy everything inside the Code box (but not the box itself) and paste it into a Notepad document. Save the file as "msconfig.reg" (the .reg extension is essential). Then double click on the file and say "Yes" when Windows asks for permission to merge this into your registry.
NOTE: This is only a fix for the missing path - and may not remedy your situation. If that happens, then I'd have to suggest scanning for malware as the next step.
