START + R blocked, alternatives?


Recommended Posts

I am pen testing a system that has disabled START + R (Windows key and 'R' to bring up run box), I am testing there security from a social engineering point of view and am using a rubber ducky.  Has anyone got any ideas on some alternatives to START + R or any other methods to run powershell with tags from the ducky in Windows 7.

Most ducky scripts (if not all) use START + R to run any programs/commands so any help would be appreciated.

Is the start menu itself disabled?
Is search on the start menu disabled?

If no to both of those, just do START, then type what you are looking for and CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER will launch it in admin mode if needed.

Another option would be START+E to open explorer and then tabbing your way around that way (either search or address bar to type what you are looking for)
