Do you mean a Run box on the start menu?
or a windows Key?

Right-click Taskbar and choose Properties then the 'Start Menu' tab. Click the Customize button then then the Advanced tab. Scroll down the list and tick the box next to 'Run command'.

Run Box Missing
Click "start" and right-click any part of the start pannel which is blue... Then select "Properties".... Then go to the "customise" button, followed by the "Advanced" tab....
Now scroll down around 3/4 of the way you will see "Run Command"... Tick this and press OK... You should now see the Run option on the Start Pannel....
