It sounds quite obvious. You have an envirovent-variable called "PATH" whose content is too long.

If you open a command (DOS) window and write "set PATH" you will see the content of that variable. Maybe you can shorten it by removing part of it?

PATH is a variable being used by some systems including window. When trying to find a system file it will look in all directories specified in the PATH. Content like c:\windows\system32 are critical but maybe some weird application has added itself to the path? Each directory in the path variable is separated with a semicolon.
