HELP! I've messed up KDE none of my desktop Icons work

HELP! I was trying to change my "View Profile" in Konqueror and I've really messed things up some how.

If I now click the wastebin or other desktop items I get this message:

"There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated Konqueror with inode/directory, but it can't handle this file type."

Also I seem to now have 3 view pains in Konqueror one on the right with what look like html code or something. It seem the file managing/link side of KDE is buggered.

Its my fault I know, but is there anyway of get KDE back to a default setting? Its taken me age to setup my system and everything was working great (if it aint broke don't fix it eh!)

Can anyone help I REALLY don't want to have to re-install Mandrake 10

Big Thanks in advance

What exactly did you do? Have you tried going into KDE file associations and setting them all to default?
