That may be the cause of your problems.  Before you reinstall everything, I 
would try renaming your .kde directory to .kde-save (from a console, not 
from within kde!) to make kde start fresh.  If that solves the problem, 
copy the config files that you actually need, plus your bookmarks, 
from .kde-save to the corresponding place in .kde.  I normally rename 
Desktop too.  (Perhaps should also rename .kderc?)

Another good test (as recommended by someone else in this thread) is to 
create a new user on the system, and test if that account works properly.
