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

REGEDIT4
BLANK LINE GOES HERE
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"ParseAutoexec"="1"

BLANK LINE GOES HERE

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