user account crash

Since this morning, 95% of the apps I try to launch from my regular user
account crash. This includes most KDE apps (konsole, kontact, kopete,
konqueror, kaffeine...), most GTK apps (firefox, oofice). Even if I logon to
a GNOME session, everything also crashes. Other users are unaffected, though.
I'm trying to figure what could've happened, but I'm clueless. A stale lock
file somewhere? A virus? An X authority problem? I don't know what or where
to look for.
I ran clamscan and a few files like this one came up:
/home/xxx/.klamav/quarantine/1161303535.17016.jApH0:2,S:lun octobre 30 2006
08-48-58-983 am: HTML.Phishing.Pay-187 FOUND
The scan is still running, so maybe something else will come up. The 100$
question is: Even though it's almost impossible, could I've been infected?!?
Could this be the cause of my problems? Is there a quick and easy way I could
restore my account without manually copying all files to a new account?
Any help is welcome.
