What are some useful run commands for Windows 7?
Windowskey + R should open up the familiar "run box" but Oron is correct, a lot of the commands can be used directly within the Search box.
As for useful commands I'm really not sure what to suggest. I guess opening up applications which are usually buried in the All Programs menu or Control Panel is nice e.g. msconfig, services.msc, gpedit.msc but thanks to the Search box you can open those without the "run box" just as easily.
For me that only leaves troubleshooting commands like regsvr32 which you (hopefully) don't need on a regular basis.
As far as I know, there isn't a separate "run" command in Windows 7 but the "search programs and files" box can be used for that purpose. Here are some things you can do with it:
