write permission error and KDE not loading

I've install Mandrake 10.0 Com. Ed. for 2-3 months.Everything was ok till i try couple of Live CD distros such as Knoppix,Suse etc.

Now when i run mandrake,on loading KDE , i get an error something like, /usr/.../.kde/... can not be modified and it doesn't load KDE at all.

As i'm so new on Linux i don't know what's exactly going on, but i guess maybe LiveCD distors cause that.

Could you tell me how to fix it!

LiveDistro's modifying /usr on a hd-install that
isn't theirs? Unlikely ...

Have a look at the permissions of the file it's trying
to touch, and, more to the point, find out WHY a
normal users account would want to modify some
system wide files in the first place.
