I have done a clean install of windows xp sp3 with all latest windows updates and .net frameworks and am missing right click run as command!

the machine is on a domain, no domain policy is in place to this effect because it works on other machines fine! no local policies have been applied either!

i am logged in as a domain admin! makes no difference.

i am logged in as just "local admin" makes no difference

any ideas please?

  1. Log on to the computer as Administrator, or log on as a user who has administrative permissions.
   2. Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Manage.
   3. In Computer Management, expand the Services and Applications node, and then click Services.
   4. Perform one of the following steps, depending on which operating system that you have:
          * Windows 2000: In the details pane, right-click the RunAs service, and then click Properties.
          * Windows XP: In the details pane, right-click the Secondary Logon service, and then click Properties.
