Windows 7: Run prompt will not let me type

Windows 7 Professional x64
Run prompt will not let me type

Greetings Win 7 Forum!

Whenever I choose to launch the Run prompt with the Winkey+R shortcut, the window opens, but I am completely unable to type anything into the Run dialogue box. The Run command does work, because if I choose Run from the Start menu or search bar, it will open and I can type into the prompt box. But the keyboard shortcut version will not let me, for some reason. This isn't a big issue, but just more of a minor annoyance that I am curious to fix.
