# Intel and the PATH

I'm running into PATH size problems on my Windows 10, 64 bit system. Intel (of course) is a major contributor:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client\; C:\Program Files\Intel\iCLS Client\; C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL; C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL; C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT; C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT; C:\Program Files\Intel\WiFi\bin\; C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intel\WirelessCommon\

Can any of these be removed?

Can I kill off the 32 bit variants in Program Files (x86) and let the system find the tools C:\Program Files?

Finally, what is the safest way to experiment with this?

• Backup the variable. You can use the short version of most of those folders. – Ramhound Sep 18 '16 at 13:53
• Why do you have spaces after the the `;` in your `PATH`? That causes broken behaviour. Remove those spaces and try again. – DavidPostill Sep 18 '16 at 15:27
• Intel and the path? Why intel. Do you think it would be different on an AMD? – Hennes Nov 26 '16 at 13:06
• Why you have same apps for x64 and x86 at once? do you use `Intel(R) Management Engine`, if not uninstall it... – Adam Silenko Nov 26 '16 at 14:11
