Unlock the padlock ? I assume here you are set with a "standard" account.
Might be best to resolve the issue through Single User Mode.
I would recommend looking at this thread for reference.

If no accounts on the system have admin privileges, then you can recreate the admin group and add users to it, but it will take using Terminal commands. Here is how to do this: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-20007408-263.html
I also discuss how to do this procedure here: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57412030-263/how-to-switch-to-a-standard-us er-account-in-os-x/

The instructions don't work on a MacBook pro with OS X 10.6.7., with no ADMIN ACCT.
Trying to help a friend who is out of warranty & no Applecare.
Usually able to Boot from original 10.6x install cd (have several oem + purchased disks),
but Cmd+C doesn't work, neither will Cmd+S or Cmd+V.
Everything results in standard login screen only showing user's Standard Acct for login option.
