"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are talking about environment variables, user variables override system variables.  Also, user environment variables set via system properties, can be overridden during a cmd "session", letting each command prompt window to have its own "versions" of the variables.

While this KB article is written for older version of Windows, the precedence that it describes is still used:
