Unable to log in as Administrator t

I am running windows 2000 on a 7yr old laptop. Since loading Avast AV I have been unable to log in as administrator. (I get log on box in which I can write the password then get “loading personal settings” which is as far as goes; I just then have a blue screen with the egg timer - it maybe something to do with a lack for resources- maybe something to do with virtual memory)
I can however log in as a subsidiary User.
As I think the problem is with resource hungry Avast I want to uninstall it. However I can not do this from the subsidiary User account.
1 Is there a way to uninstall from the subsidiary account by someway overriding the User account restrictions?
2 And/or is there a way to get in to the administrator account?
Any help/suggestions much appreciated.

Have you tried booting to Safe Mode? Are you using the Default Administrator account or another one?

How much free space do you have on your OS partition?

thanks managed to sort it out thro safe mode .
Touching on a different point:
I want to download KeyScrambler as an add-on for Firefox in a subsidiary User A/C. This I can only do through Firefox’s “Get add-ons” The problem is that this download add-on is an earlier version. It is only possible to get the latest Keyscrambler version outside Firefox for the administrator a/c.
1 Is there a way to get the latest version into the subsidiary User a/c?
2 Is it possible to give administrator rights to a subsidiary a/c
Any help or advice would be much appreciated
