    unlike before. The history folder for internet explorer is in the windows folder named history. But now i cant find such a folder and when i try searching for it it didnt show. Show i was wondering if anyone know where it is and how can i move it to the windows history folder.

    And also. Does anyone know where the run command is kept or whats a shortcut key for it?

    Look in the folder 'documents & settings'. It should be in there somewhere. :D

    Jason -

    are you looking for the "Run" option to show up in the start menu.. or are you attempting to run a program a certain way, say for instance, as an administrator, etc...??

    im looking for the run option at the start menu cause i somehow lost it after i added a password to administrator for some reason. so i need to find teh actual command and make a shortcut of it.

    try this..

    right click your taskbar>click on "properties"

    next, click on the "Start Menu" tab up at the top

    if you are using the Classic Start Menu on the "Customize" button...

    next, in the Advanced Start Menu options box at the bottom..make sure you have the "Display Run" entry checked off...

    THats it!!.. just close that window out...then click on Start..and viola... you should see "run"...if not..

    then goto this field in the registry: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] and there you will find an entry for "StartMenuRun" make sure the dword setting is set to 1. As always, BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!!!!!

    good luck !
