Sorry. I thought you said you were having the problem with konqueror.

No. I had a problem like that (sounds like a misconfigured program) and
would retype "kdeinit" on a terminal line to get things back to running
again. However, my final solution was to login as root and go to the Control
system, create a fake user (called "Fake"), remove my regular user, go into
another terminal and rename my user file <user.old> and then recreate my user
and delete the fake one (you need the fake one because it will not delete an
I then copied the essential files from <user.old> into my recreated <user>
(but not the desktop icons -- do those from scratch because sometimes the
.kdelink files get messed up). If that fixes the problem, I would make sure
I had a good firewall in place before getting active on the Internet again.
After a few weeks, if you have everything working right, remove the
<user.old> from your computer.
