Error message, Can't access ANY administrator accounts.

Error message: This operation has been can canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please your system administrator.
I'm not at the PC right now and won't be for a while but decided i should get the ball rolling on this as soon as possible. Its using Windows XP Home Edition.
My mom's computer, at some point, started giving this error message when trying to go to control panel and adjust some other things. the way you log in has changed from the icon based system to a kind of form where you have to type in both the username and password. there were 3 accounts on the computer, "Kids", "Cherie" and "Nick". "Nick" and "Cherie" had administrator privileges while "Kids" was Limited. Now it seems everyhing is under the KIDS account. Even if I log in to "Nick" wit hthe right password it is still limited and some things still say KIDS. Seems to me some how a group was made called KIDs and all the other users were put under it.
another odd thing is even in Safe mode, when I log into any of the accounts or Administrator those accounts are just as limited. I apparently have no access to a administrator accoutn that I know of on that computer.
