101 useful Run Commands in Windows XP

copied from pcworld ...

Guys do you use the Run feature in Windows XP? For most, this feature
remains unused (or rarely used). Why is that? Well, First off nearly
all of the Run Commands Correspond to a particular Control Panel Item
or a Utility, Tool or Task that can be accessed through Windows. There
are, however, tools and utilities that I bet you never knew you had
that can be accessed through the Run feature. The main reason most
people don't use the Run feature is because they don't know the
Commands. So, to solve that problem, I decided to put together the
following listing, which lists 101 Run Commands and what they
correspond too...
