Use Offline password and registry editor on UBCD to edit or view the registry.

Yeah I will get that far but then locating that file is where I get lost

Run the registry editor of Offline password and registry editor.
Look at: http://www.governmentsecurity.org/articles/WindowsNTRegistryTutorial.php to see which hive file you need to load.

I your case you need to view HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit, which is located in the %systemroot%\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE hive file.

I just searched a little bit on the internet to find it :wink: .

Thank you for your time and patience, this is really confusing for me :) but I'm not exactly sure how to even navigate that far, I pressed enter a few times to get past the first few questions then I press 9 to get to the registry editor, at least I'm guessing that's where I need to be to do all this. Sorry that It's taking me so long to understand all this!

Select the right hard drive.
Select which part of the registry to load, ...:
[1]: software

9 Registry editor, now with full write support.
What to do? [1] -> 9

> cd Microsoft
\Microsoft> cd Windows NT
\Microsoft\Windows NT> cd CurrentVersion
\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion> cd Winlogon
(..)\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon> cat Userinit
Value <Userinit> of type REG_SZ, data length 68 [0x44]

If the value of Userinit didn't change, you just have to replace the file 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe' with a virus free copy (recovery console).
If it did change from name
You can type
ed Userinit

to set the value to:

Press ? if you need any help for the commands.
ls will display subkeys & values
cat will show the value of a key
ed allows you to edit a value of a key
cd will change the current key (cd .. will bring you back a level higher)
