To control whether NT includes AUTOEXEC.BAT's path statement in NT's PATH environmental variable cut and paste the following registry hack code into paths.reg file and run it.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"ParseAutoexec"="1"

Set ParseAutoexec=0 if you do NOT want autoexec's path parsed by NT. See .REG files for background information on .REG files.
