Learn about Mac OS X v10.5: Working with user accounts and Accounts preferences

HT3309 One User on my iMac seems to be disabled.  When I log onto that User the desktop appears empty and only half of the programs appear on the operating bar.  I cannot open any program and nothing works.  I have to use Command/Option/Esc to restart the iMac.

I cannot access one user on my iMac.  When I log onto that user the dekstop appears unpopulated and blank and half of the programs do not appear on the operating bar.  When I attempt to click on a program such as Safari nothing happens.  Nothing works and I can only exit by doing a command/option/esc and restarting the computer.  The other user and the Administrator work fine.  What has disabled the one user?  How do I recover this user and its files?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
