As an administrator, is it possible through SharePoint, or some other tool, to view the webparts and configuration of other users sites & pages?

Do you mean their personalizations to webparts and pages. – Steve P Oct 14 '10 at 17:35
Yes... the personalized view. – Bravax Oct 15 '10 at 8:38

We used screen shots a lot for resolving defects. If you have some kind of remote desktop sharing application, that might help.

Aside from the normal access control a farm administrator can put you in the Site Collection Administrators group.

The question relates to personalized views not to being able to view pages in general – Steve P Oct 15 '10 at 14:49
