Try ubuntu:
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Download "Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop" and burn it directly to a CD.

If you would prefer to boot from a flash drive, download this awesome program:
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
When you run that, you can tell it to make you a bootable flash drive with Ubuntu, or any number of other linux distributions, and it will.  Saves a lot of time/effort.

Since this is Windows, you may want to look at this too:

Windows PE
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766093.aspx

It's a bootable Windows CD which would allow you to rename the files you wanted pretty easily.  Pretty much any of the previously mentioned Linux CD's would also do that, but you certainly don't need a 600MB download to fix such a simple problem.  INSERT is a good one if you want to use Linux.

click on Ubuntu, then click on download, select your download location, then click begin download

burn the ISO, boot from it, in the menu select Live, when fully booted from the "places" menu select the drive/partition that has your windows file(s), select the flie that you want to edit - double click to open, make changes, save, then reboot.

That will allow you to edit the files as you asked in your initial question...is this what you want?
You're last messages is now talking about a Windows boot cd, so I'm confused
