Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I want to remove the Run command or Run box from windows start menu because I don't want others to use my computer to enter any kind of Run commands in the Run box that will enable them to reconfigure or even ruin my windows settings.

You can see the Run box right after you click the windows start button to see all the programs installed in your computer. Check the image below:

There is also another way of removing the Run command in your Start menu besides using the customization found in the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties. You need to install Norton SystemWorks 2010 or any older or newer version will do. It has a lot of tweaks for Windows XP.

After you install it, click on Optimize Your PC, as shown in the image below:

Then click on System Optimizer, as shown below:

Click on Start Menu & Taskbar:

Click on the checkbox beside Remove Run, then click on Apply, then hit Exit:

Then check if the Run command in your Start menu is gone. There's a lot of other tweaks inside the program. Just check them out and see what happens.
