Should I deleted Path C:\Perl\site\bin;C:\Perl\bin;C:\ColdFusio... ? It might cause some instability issues ?
If you no longer have Perl
in a location other than XAMPP then by all means delete those entries only, same for the ColdFusion entry if that is long gone and anything else in the Path
variables you spot that you know for sure has been deleted from your PC - don't delete the whole Path
variable only those entries you know are not needed using the Edit

This from the Help
menu in regedit
- see Notes
in the quote below:
To export all or part of the registry to a text file
1. Open Registry Editor (see Notes below).
2. On the File menu, click Export.
3. In File name, enter a name for the registry file.
4. Under Export range, do one of the following:
* To back up the entire registry, click All.
* To back up only a particular branch of the registry tree, click Selected branch and enter the name of the branch you want to export.
5. Click Save.
* Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on your computer.
* To open Registry Editor, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
* You can use a text editor like Notepad to work with the registry files you create by exporting.

then type your keyword(s) php
perhaps - this, like any other search facility including these forums here, is reliant on your experimentation with the keywords used - you can also find help details in the above mentioned Index>searching for registry keys, values or strings
Also you may like to search your PC for any other instances of a php.ini file and delete them, other than any that are in the xampp installation folder tree that is.
Best of luck.
