I think my PATH environment variable value is too big.  

If I try to view it from My Computer it shows "C:\Program Files\Common Files\App11\0.r1134\..".

If I go to a DOS\Console window and type: echo %PATH% it shows all the contents.

How can I prune the value of my PATH environment value when I cannot access it from the My Computer interface?
