    'Windows Key + R' not working on Windows XP System.

    Am unable to get the Run through Windows Key + R, though am able to get if from the start menu but why 'Windows Key + R' is not working. Please tell me do I enable something or do I need to change the settings somewhere? Please help me as soon as possible. Though the problem is minor but I need a fix for it.

    Hey ,
    I heared first time this problem.
    But dont worry you can open it
    by going to Start button and then go
    to Run...
    It will open the program that you want
    to open.
    But i dont know about your problem of windows+r.
