    Please any point in the right direction I'd really appreciate thank you.

    Basically I believe a virus has changed my admin privileges and may even have erased my restore points. I cant open third party apps or access my admin privileges even though I'm logged in as administrator . only way to start up cmd with admin rights is to do it from safe mode
    im just trying to save what data i can off my laptop before worst case senairo i have a major crash or have to reformat completely. here are some screen shots of my system and error messages I'm getting . thank you for taking the time to help if you do.

  3. The system could not find the environment option that was entered

    Hello Shivam,

    This problem occurs in situations where Shutdown.exe cannot access the UserDomain environment variable. The shutdown task that is scheduled by using the
    at command runs under the System account. When the task is run under the System account, the UserDomain environment variable cannot be accessed because it does not exist. But the issue mostly occurs on server domains.

    We would suggest you to try the following steps:

    1. Boot your system into
    safe mode
    .

    2. Press Windows key + R.

    3. Type sysdm.cpl and click OK.

    4. Click on "Advanced" tab

    5. In "Startup and Recovery", click on "Environment variables"

    6. Under "System variables" Click on "New"

    7. For "Variable Name", type in windir

    8. For "Variable value", type in C:\Windows

    9. Click OK on the all the dialog boxes that pop-up.

    10. Reboot your system in normal mode.

    If, however, your system is connected to normal mode, please refer to the following support article.

    Task by Using the AT Command


    Let us know what happens.

    System environment variable won't stick


    Running Win10 Home on an Acer Spin 3, 64bit, i7cpu. I try to add a path to the system environment variables by:

    1. Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Environment variables

    2. The "Environment Variables" window opens.
    3. In the "System Variables" pane I select "Path" and click the EDIT button.
    4. A list of the current system paths is displayed.
    5. I click the NEW button, browse to the path I want to add which is "C:\Python36-32" and click OK. The path "C:\Python36-32" is added to the list of current system paths.
    6. I click OK and am returned to the "Environment Variables" window.
    7. I click the "X" at the top right to close the "Environment Variables" window.

    Now if I click the "Environment Variables" button again (end of step-1) and repeat steps 2-4, the new path I added in step-5 is gone. IOW, adding a new path won't stick.

    What am I doing wrong?
