System Icons all opening xmms and dont know why!

For whatever reason, I did something wrong. The outcome is this: When i go to click on My computer, Printer or whatever Icon on KDE 3.4 desktop, they all want to open xmms media player. How do I get the icons to open their original targets?

You may have success removing the hidden .kde folder as root user.
For example: user is fred

su -
# enter root password

rm -rf /home/fred/.kde

Then, logout and back in as that user.
