I had the same problem some time ago, but I think it was caused by old 
config files somewhere in the directory ~/.kde (I did an upgrade from 
Dapper). I deleted that directory and started with a fresh KDE 
environment and the system settings also worked in administrator mode. 
But beware, if you delete that directory, you may loose your emails (and 
maybe other things which are important to you). You could try the 
command "kdesu systemsettings" (without quotes) if nothing else works.
