  • Are you talking about the Run... option from the start menu?  Try these, but note - your system administrator has set these for a reason, changing them could have consequences.  And the settings will be reapplied so you'd need to reset the registry values again:

    User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Value Name: NoRun
    Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

    You would want to change it to 0

  • But are you using your computer in a domain where policies might have been newly applied to your system?
