Safe Mode - accessing Administrator

  halliborange 18:52 30 Jul 2006

Dell Dimension 5000 running Win XP SP2.

When I try to access the Administrator Account in Safe Mode the PC locks. I can access the (two) other user accounts OK. No password is requested and there is no disk activity. I am unable to use Alt+Tab or Ctrl+Alt+Del and the only way to restart is by pressing and holding the power button (no reset button on Dell). I have run sfc/ scannow but no problems found. No viruses or Malware reported by Norton or Win Defender. No problems with PC but I understand that access to the Administrators account might be required in event of a problem. Any ideas anyone? Thanks
