kde desktop displaying gnome theme?

Something really weird has happened - I have kde desktop and after having a look at nautilus yesterday it is layering a gnome theme over kde. When I log in as a user my kde desktop shows and is replaced a few seconds later with the gnome theme. The control centre shows my kde theme and I want my kde desktop back. Any ideas what has led to this and how I can remove the gnome theme.

run "ls -l" in a terminal on your home directory and remove everything that has "gnome" or "gtk" in it. like .gnome-desktop and .gtk2

you can also kill nautilus by running "top" in a terminal
Then find the PID number which is the number on the left of nautilus or anything gnome and push k and type in the number and push enter twice.
