Help - I have disabled my RUN line

Hello,

I'm setting up a kiosk machine for my company and I used gpedit to remove the RUN line. My intentions were to use the Windows key plus R to access the RUN line when needed. Now when logged in as a administrator I get the following error: "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer." The "New Task (Run)" has also been removed from Task Manager.

Please note this is a freshly imaged machine with no infections. I would like too avoid re-imaging this machine.

Thank you in advance.
