Applications folder inaccessible!

Hello guys, my main user account (admin privileges) suddenly can't open any application and the applications folder has become inaccessible.

It says "the folder "Applications" could not be accessed because you don't have sufficient privileges". Also, when I try to open any application, it won't open and it gives me that question mark icon.

I tried my other user accounts, one account behaves normally and the applications folder is accessible, while the other two accounts has the same issue with the main one (applications folder inaccessible).

Any help would be really appreciated, thanks a lot.

MacBook, OSX 10.5.8

Did you check permissions with the Applications folder?
