Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

#1 My kde icons seem to be bad as I am loosing icons and getting default icons instead of my theme icons little by little.

Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.
Check your Internet connection. Restart any router, modem, or other network devices you may be using.
Add Chromium as a permitted program in your firewall's or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.
If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, adjust your proxy settings: Go to the Chromium menu > Settings > Show advanced settings... > Change proxy settings... and make sure your configuration is set to "no proxy" or "direct."
I was having problems with the icons being wrong in KDE 4.10.1 and 4.10.2. I tried deleting the KDE cache and also creating a new user account. None of those things fixed the icon problem. I finally reverted to 4.9.5.
I can suggest a few things to try for your network problem. You might have already tried some of these.
Use a different network port on the computer, preferably a different type of Ethernet controller.
Reboot your router and any other switches that are between the computer and the Internet.
Search for known driver bugs for the Ethernet driver you are using.
Use Wireshark to capture the network communication and look to see what part of the communication is failing.
Create a completely new user account to test and see if that can communicate with the web site
Shut off your computer and use some other computer to ping its address. If something responds there is a duplicate IP address.
Can't help you with the KDE issue as I've given up on KDE.
But when it comes to the website issue then, provided you don't run any custom dns settings or misconfigured software firewalls, I would try upgrading the firmware in your router. Also try connecting your computer directly to your cable/dsl modem.
Possibly try a different network card and also cable/dsl modem.
But your router would be my first guess.
If non of the above resolves it then contact your Internet provider and have them check the modem on their end. It could have issues.
I've had similar issue twice with clients home networks where some websites would not be accessible. One time upgrading router's firmware solved it, another time it was an issue on the Internet provider's side.
