Unable to delete Cygwin from PATH environment variable




Hi,

I recently had to reinstall Cygwin and in doing so, I have ran into a
problem with some application because Cygwin seems to be appended to
my PATH environment variable. I have tried to remove this by following
these instructions https://www.java.com/en/download/help/path.xml but
something strange happens. If I look at the value of Path under
'Environment Variables', Cygwin is not there; however if I type PATH
in cmd.exe, I see Cygwin gets appended at the end of the PATH. Can you
please help me to know to remove Cygwin from the PATH?

As an example, this is what I see in the Environmental Variables
window Path value:

Path=C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\Program
Files\Intel\iCLS
Client\;c:\Oracle\11g_R2_x64\Administrator\11.2.0\client_1\bin;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;%systemroot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program
Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program
Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine
Components\IPT;%systemroot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Apps\Anaconda3;C:\Apps\Anaconda3\Scripts;C:\Apps\Anaconda3\Library\bin

And this is what I see in cdm.exe:

>PATH
PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\Program
Files\Intel\iCLS Clien
t\;c:\Oracle\11g_R2_x64\Administrator\11.2.0\client_1\bin;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\
Java\javapath;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS
\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:
\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files\Intel\Int
el(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Man agement Engine
Components\IPT;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\App
s\Anaconda3;C:\Apps\Anaconda3\Scripts;C:\Apps\Anaconda3\Library\bin;C:\blp\DAPI;
C:\blp\DAPI\DDE;C:\Apps\cygwin64\bin

As you can see, I have Cygwin in the second case, whereas I don't have
it on the first case.

Many thanks for your help!

Best,
Tanya
