can not run any program

hi, I use FC4.
usually I used Gnome as the default desktop.
today I just mounted a mobile harddisk (/dev/sda(1-8))
manually and unplugged it. After that I can
not run any program in Gnome, even the gnome-terminal
if I click right button, no popup menu show up.

I changed to KDE, fortunately i can run KDE terminal, but
nothing else.

what is the problem, what can I do?

Rebooting the computer does not help either? Do you have SATA internal HDDs?

just found that if I login as root, everything is fine.
so I have a temporary solution, creating a new user account.
I still do not know what profile files has been corrupted
for my original account.
