You should not include both %SystemRoot% and C:\WINDOWS paths. %SystemRoot% 
will be defined to the correct place on all NT-based systems (I don't know 
about 3.1/95/98/ME); however, if, for any reason your systemroot is not 
C:\WINDOWS (as it might be if you have 2000 and XP installed, and are booting 
into 2000), you could be calling up system applications for the wrong windows 
version (but only if they don't exist in %systemroot%). The mantra used to be 
that "a short path is a fast path", but I think that consideration is probably 
now irrelevant.

My practice is to have a path that looks like this:


and to define everything else in a separate variable, %userpath%. However, 
there's no reason to do that except for greater aesthetics.
