    Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Look in the right pane for a value called DisallowRun If it exists, it
    should be set to 0 (zero). If not, double click it and change it to 0.
    Next look in the subkey

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\DisallowRun

    Each value in the right pane represents a restricted application. Right
    click the appropriate entry and select Delete.

    In your case, msconfig.exe
