Editing registry in recovery console?



I was clearing the Aurora adware out of a user's computer and it took the
userinit.exe registry entry with it. Now whenever I try to logon to Windows
XP it immediately logs me back out to the Welcome screen.

I need to put the Userinit value back into the
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon registry key, but
can't figure out any way to do that without access to the Windows regedit.exe.
In a possibly unrelated problem, I'm not able to remotely access the machine
either and I don't think it's set up for remote registry services; at least,
I wasn't able to get into it over the network on my machines own regedit (nor
am I able to do any sort of remote access, the machine immediately closes any
connection I establish). All of this just means that I can't make this very
simple and easy fix through the methods I'd normally use.

My question is if there's a way to manually add values to the registry
through the recovery console, or if there's some bootable utility out there
which would let me do that.
