Since us regular users don't know what it's for I'd recommend leaving it disabled!

Thank you for checking this!
I can confirm that it prunes orphaned entries from the PATH environment variable.
I have just done a CCleaner run with Environment Path checked, and it reduced my PATH list from 33 entries (including an empty one - two semicolons) to 28.
What it does not remove are duplicates; I found three entries of "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live". Maybe that could be an additional small improvment to CCleaner?
