What is the default PATH environment variable setting on fresh install of Windows 7

It seems that my PATH settings were deleted by some program (it currently has only entries for Digital Mars D utilities), so I'm asking what directories are included in path by default? Even the most basic things such as tracert or ping are not working for me.

See the Windows 7 column in Default Values on Microsoft Windows.

I don't think this actually answers the question. It might show the default values for the variable names, but it doesn't show what the default PATH settings are. – user3463 Sep 27 '10 at 20:23
In the table, %PATH% and %PSModulePath% rows specify the default PATH settings. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Sep 27 '10 at 20:28
