You might need to re-expand it.. use the recovery console..

Before that try running sfc /scannow to check your files..

To fix it, right click on My Computer then properties Advaned System Settings. Go to Advanced tab and click Environment Variables. In text list under system variables, double click variable named "Path". Add text "C:\Windows;C:\Windows\system32" in variable value. Restart your
computer.
Your error message and the path solution are also mentioned here.
