    Hi Friend,

    >> The problem in Run option is not present in the windows xp.

    >> Sometimes the virus effect on the operating system and hide some option.

    >> so you need to remove virus from the system.

    >> If Run option is displayed in the start menu then you can use shortcut key Window key + R.

    >> Now Run menu will appear on the screen.

    >> For the regular use you need to remove virus.

    I Hope you will understand,

    All The Best.
