Re: [Bug-wget] How to Use WGET in Windows

I may have caused serious problems to my computer.  I tried following the 
directions below, and under “Variable Value” I deleted everything and then 
typed  ;c:\Progs     Now I just read somewhere that if you DELETE anything from 
the Path, you can cause serious problems to your computer!  Should I now 
restore my computer to an earlier time?
