FC2, nautilus crashes, no write icons

Recently "No wrtie icons" have appeared on most of the icons on my desktop.

When I double click on the "computer" icon, to browse the file system, it returns error " The Application nautlius has quit unexctedly"

I created a test user and an logged in as the test user. The test account does not have this problem.

I recently ran up2date, for the first time in months. I am not sure if this is exactly when the problem started, but it seems like the only major change I am aware of.

Thanks in advance for any help

One other thing that I just remembered.
At about the same time this problem occured there was a thunderstorm.
I lost power and the box rebooted or abended as we used to say.
Could this have corrupted something in the users profile?
Is there any cleanup utility I can run

again thanks in advance.

damn
I am sooo close.
I also tried deleting my .nautilus directory.
It recreated itself and I have the same problem.
I am about to add the test acct to the root gruop, just to see if this caused the problem or if I have two independent problems.

by the way, I just bought a new computer for the first time in 7 years. I hate to spend money on hardware. It really doesnt turn me on. Anyways, this is forcing me to migrate my mail server and web sever from a 10 year old Caldera linux box. I think it is safe to admit now, that I built the web server from peices I smuggled home from work one at a time in my pocket. And it has been running non stop for approx. 10 years, maybe 8 not really counting. I think it is a 150mmx with 16M of RAM. I have had ablosulety no problems. It keeps running and running. Maybe I should just keep it going, but I dont want to have 3 PCs powered up. It seems like a waste. It is amazing how stable a 10 year old web server can be. Unfortunately the new work station will run XP, because it is a home office type of deal. I actually paid 130 bux for the license. First time ever for me to have a legit installation of windows.
So I guess my point is, I would love to keep FC2 running for the next 1o years both as my web server and personal worksation, but dont like the idea of having nautilus crash. Once I migrate the web server to FC2, I have no interest in re-installing the OS every 6 months.
thanks again.

still troubleshooting.....

I added the test acct to the root group and logged in as test.
this caused the no write icons to appear, but did not cause nautlus to crash.

then I created another test acct, test2.
I copied over the home dir from the bad acct, and logged in as test2
when I cilick on the "computer" icon Nautlius crashes with same error:
The Application "Nautlus" has quit unexpecedly

so now I know that the problem is somewhere in the home directory.
again deleting the home/test2/.nautilus dir does not help.

I would rather find the problem than delete my home directory.
Not sure where to go next.
