Here's an idea I have, why not install some version of blackbox, reboot and use that to fix up your system?

EDIT: I just read your post again and you already seem to be using bblean. Doesn't that allow you to browse folders etc?

Still, I guess I'm fine with 7zip.

I'll probably fix it again one day down the road.
