You can "fix" a KDE configuration problem by removing (or renaming if there 
are some important things to get back) the .kde(4) directory.
A newbie can do that, if he still has access to a file manager.

Also, if he still has access to a web browser, he can go to a forum and ask 
for help.

If he don't know how to fix, he still has a working (although minimal) 
environment from where he can search for help.
That's way better that re-installing.
