clean install of windows xp missing right click run as command!

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?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

  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.
   5. In the Properties dialog box, set Startup type to Automatic, and then click Start.
   6. After the computer starts the service, click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then close Computer Management.
