You could try and create a new user account to see if that one just got messed up through some freak accident.

I also think that resetting to default settings might be the best idea. It may be sufficient to delete the users ~/.kde folder.

You could try looking under Preference->KDE Components->File Associations to see what your user has set as fille associations, and consider changing it to the settins in your "new user" account.

(Being preverse, I've set most of my associations to either XEMACS or Firefox, which causes some reall wierd behavior unless you're use to it. For example, clicking on a directory in Konquor on my system brings up XEMACS in diredit mode, which startles some usrs, but I like it.)
