It overwrites PATH!
Dangerous piece of junk. If it wiped your path variable the following registry entry has the original one: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\XXX\Control\Session Manager\Environment\Path where XXX is ControlSet001 or ControlSet002 or Current ControlSet. see superuser.com search for "deleted-path-environment-variable-how-to-restore"
It destroys PATH variable.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES INSTALL THIS ON WINDOWS 10 YOUR PATH VARIABLE WILL BE WIPED That being said, if you did accidentally install it, DO NOT REBOOT and download Process Explorer. Go through the properties of processes until you find one that holds the original PATH variable in its environment and copy/paste it over your current Path variable. To the author of this project, since it comes up in Google search results and is highly malicious to just install. TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY AND TAKE DOWN THE PROJECT
Don't install it on Windows 10 as others have said. Use process explorer from sysinternals to retrieve your deleted path variable as long as you haven't rebooted. Check properties until you find a process with the path environmental variable with the original values and use copy/paste to retrieve the original.
