You will have to do the "dreaded" registry hack thingy,
Open your registry - which since you don't have "run" you will have to open
from a command line - which you cannot get from the "run" either - so here
is the long long workaround that I thought of for you ----
Try this -  To open a command prompt, click Start, point to All Programs,
point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt. 
If for some reason you cannot find that, then you can do the following ---
Hit F1 - to get to the help and support - then do a look for MS-DOS
overview. The overview will show up like this --- and hit the "Open Command
Prompt" line - that will of course get a command line window.
"MS-DOS, the acronym for Microsoft Disk Operating System, is an operating
system with a command-line interface used on personal computers. As with
other operating systems such as OS/2
<ms-its:C:\WINDOWS\Help\win_dos.chm::/HELP=glossary.hlp TOPIC=gls_os2> , it
translates keyboard input by the user into operations the computer can
perform, it also oversees operations such as disk input and output, video
support, keyboard control, and many internal functions related to program
execution and file maintenance.

You type MS-DOS commands using a command prompt window
TOPIC=gls_command_prompt_window> . To end your MS-DOS session, type exit in
the command prompt window at the blinking cursor.

The MS-DOS mode is a shell in which the MS-DOS environment is emulated in
32-bit systems, such as Windows. MS-DOS-based programs can run with Windows
and might create a program information file (PIF
<ms-its:C:\WINDOWS\Help\win_dos.chm::/HELP=glossary.hlp TOPIC=gls_pif> )
which appears as a shortcut on your desktop.

Open Command Prompt".
On the command line type - regedit
This should open up the registry for you...
From there, navigate to the following key and make sure the data value = 1
Value Name: NoRun
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data:(0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)
Let me know if that solved the problem.
