Try this and let me know how you go
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Taskbar & Start Menu.
2. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Display Run check box.
3. Click OK.

Sorry wrong one this is for ME

double click MY COMPUTER, choose local disk, choose windows, doubleclick REGEDIT

navigate to
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

in the run pane, do you see anything about NORUN? There is a system policy that hides the run command from the start menu

I have the same problem. Maybe it is different on Windows 2000, but I only have keys up to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\*only active desk, nonenum, ratings and system*

Any ideas?
