Remove the $HOME variable from your Windows environment. Note that $HOME
is *not* a typical Windows environment variable. Windows itself only
uses $HOMEDRIVE and $HOMEPATH. If $HOME is set in your Windows env,
you either did it by yourself at one point, or you installed some third
part software which meddled with the Windows environment.
