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?
