PHP ini

I am getting an error:
A PHP Error was encountered
Severity: Warning
Message: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(C: blah blah blah

I researched this and found that I need to Modify the open_basedir settings in your PHP configuration.

The full warning is:
Severity: Warning

Message: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(C:\inetpub\wwwroot\system/expressionengine/third_party/cartthrob/config/C:\inetpub\wwwroot\system/expressionengine/third_party/cartthrob/config/config.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (C:/inetpub/wwwroot)

in my PHP.ini I have:
open_basedir = "C:/inetpub/wwwroot"

Can someone show me an example of the right way to do this?  Thanks in advance.

If open_basedir is set the it limits all file operations to this directory and below.
Can you try to comment it out via:
;open_basedir = "C:/inetpub/wwwroot"
