Tried a system restore. It asks for the administrator logon password. Of course when I enter it, it hangs. Is there a way to do a system restore bypassing the requirement to give the administrator password?

How do logins work? Are they encrypted into the explorer.exe file?

If it is a corrupted system file, try this: SFC /scannow
Also, you are doing this from the login screen where both accounts are presented?
Check Adobe for any Illustrator patches/updates.
