Unhappy KDE and GNOME painfully slow

Ive just finished my 3rd re-install of Redhat, (this time it was my fault - I deleted some
system files that later turned out to be very important), anyway, this time I opted to
install both KDE and GNOME, and for some reason no matter which one I use, it is taking
ages to start up, and when I select something in a menu or click on an icon on the desktop
theres a delay of like 5 or 6 seconds before anything happens. Please note, this does NOT
happen when I click an icon in konquorer or nautalis, or use an app, ie. Apps themselves are
not slowed down, just the desktop icons, start menu, starting up and shutting down.
