nautilus - Not opening.

Hey... Nautilus suddenly started working. I click on any of the Nautilus buttons I have in my Desktop and nothing happens. If I open the terminal with my account and type /usr/bin/nautilus I get no error message:

[joseamuniz@localhost joseamuniz]$ nautilus
[joseamuniz@localhost joseamuniz]$

But if I run the progarm as root 'su -c /usr/bin/nautilus' it opens...

I set chmod +777 for the program but still I get the same results. What should I do?

hm... I solved the problem. There was a nautilus process running which was not working normally. I killed it and everything returned to normal. Thanks anyway.
