Exclamation Sudden [and bad] issues with Adept, openOffice, & more on Kubuntu 8.04

For Adept, programs, and then the screensaver program, I seem to be getting a weird pop-up saying the following;

Will not save configuration.

Configuration file "/home/kelsy/.kde/share/config/OpenOffic.orgrc" not writable.

Configuration file "/home/kelsy/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals" not writable.

Please contact your system administrator.
The same happens with the other two, and I'm completely lost on what to do.

Also, when I try to run Adept, the password prompt comes up, but nothing else does. Has this happened to anyone else before, or any part of it?

Dolphin isn't showing me anything anymore, in anything. I tried logging in as root on it, nothing.

I've read through an old thread, and they had something similar. However, when trying to install the program that helped him, it said I didn't have the permission.

I'm still learning the whole Linux/Ubuntu thing, and could really use help.

Yet another update. :|

I tried to restart my laptop, hoping something good would come of it, but it pretty much pooped out on me; Kubuntu started scanning through my files in an attempt to find the "hidden" files, but it ended up not finding them, and going straight to that black terminal screen.

I restarted again, killing it manually, and it came up just fine. Note, this time I wasn't connected to the internet. I'm slightly lost on why this would happen... could it be something that go into my computer? This is making my head do backflips, in a back-breaking way. :/
