Not sure what to tell you, regarding restoration of the old values. I'm fairly certain it can't be done under the circumstances you've described. There are some Registry keys that also hold this information though, so a System Restore may be of help - I'm sure by now that will revert a lot of changes you'd rather not have undone, though.

You're welcome. I'd recommend also trying to determine a root cause for this problem, if you can. It is possible that the PATH variable may have been corrupted by a bad software or update installation, or by user error, but some malware may try to manipulate it as well.

comment Outdated Trusted Root Certification Authority in Windows 7?
Go to Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update. In the panel on the left, select "Restore hidden updates". You will then see a list of updates which you or the system administrator have previously chosen to hide from the list of available updates - usually this will include things like Language Packs, or additional Microsoft software (e.g.: Silverlight) that you don't ever expect to need. See if there's a Trusted Root CA or other security update among those. If so, un-hide it and run the update.

Have you checked for any "hidden" updates in Windows Update?

comment Outdated Trusted Root Certification Authority in Windows 7?
Additionally, some more information could be useful: What OS version & service pack are you running? What browser version? What specific websites are you trying to access? Do you have this problem on other computers, or on the same computer with different browsers? What's the exact error you are getting? Can you bypass the error via some sort of "Proceed Anyway" option (usually available for cases such as this)?

comment Outdated Trusted Root Certification Authority in Windows 7?
There is a big difference between the issue in the article and yours. The article targets small companies who are having problems because their websites are often not signed by one of the big universally-trusted Root CAs. The problem you are having is with accessing the website of one really big company who does have SSL certs signed by one of the regular Root CAs. There's no reason you should be using OpenSSL as described in that article to create certs for Google's websites. Make sure your system time is correct, and you've applied all OS & browser updates.

comment How do I calculate clock speed in multi-core processors?
Many of the answers here do a good job of explaining why e.g. a quad-core 2 GHz processor is not necessarily equal to a single-core 8 GHz processor. However, I'm having a difficult time divining how multi-core processor speeds should be regarded when deciding a system's suitability for an application that lists a specific speed and number of cores in its requirements? (e.g.: Borderlands 2 requires a 2.4 GHz dual-core processor. Should we expect a lower-speed quad-core, or higher-speed single-core to do just as well?) Is that (or could it be) answered here, or should it be a separate question?

It looks like your question is missing some details, just before the event log information. Could you fill in the missing bits?
