Got one designer's G5 (running 10.4.10) that appears to hang in Spotlight when we attempt to log into her user account. I can get into an Admin account, or Root, but the one she wishes to use stalls at the screen-saver image. Only Spotlight's little spyglass appears in the menu bar at top right, accompanied by the Spinning Beachball. Can Spotlight be "killed" using the Admin or Root account? How else can I deal with this productivity-disabling circumstance?
