    Did you censorship the path or that is the exact output?

    If that is the exact output, seems to me your HOME environment variable
    might be affecting.

    Please check the values of home, homedrive, homepath and userprofile
    environment variables.

    Also, since you're using windows is highly likely you're using
    rubyinstaller (either direct or from railsinstaller). Please check
    rubyinstaller troubleshooting page at github.
