Did you stop the Network Service? Have you tried commands in a terminal to check for errors being reported?

Were you on about Mdk9.2RC1? Coz I've just got the same problem, Kde starts but no apps are in the menus and no desktop menu buttons can start them. They're listed at the command line if I log out. I think I'll reinstall tomorrow morning and do a TakeII

That's just linux cache-ing stuff in your ram. It's actively using it to speed reloading apps etc. Better than having it sitting there unused
As long as it isnt swapping loads then your fine.
