All the recovery CDs will do is to return to as new from the factory condition without saving any files.If you have the CD key from the upgrade CD you could borrow a XP Home CD from someone to repair it.
I'm not sure this will work, but You might be able to use a BartPE CD:
http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/
or a Live Linux CD to access the computer and Autoruns and make the change

I'm going to move this to the XP forums

System manufacturer and model?

Tell me more about this upgrade CD...that you claim won't work. What does that mean? They seem to work for plenty of others who use them.

If you mean the program autoruns you should be able to use BartPE and run autoruns and recheck the box you unchecked.

Certain Windows programs will run in PE mode - and the use of the BartPE disk should allow this. Not having used BartPE in a long, long time - I'll have to ask....Does it have the option to load registry hives from the disk when it loads?

Yes you can load/access the original registry hives from the HDD and edit and make changes to them. For example if you delete the user LOGON you can restore that and reload the hive. (I had to do this once)

Thanks Sneakycyber! I've been using a version of Windows PE that's proprietary and have lost touch with the freeware alternatives. I'll have to make some time to try BartPE again!
