The source of this error is a malformed configuration file, which usually happens after updates. To fix this problem, do the following steps:

1. Go to /home

2. Go to .kde4

3. Go to share

4. Go to config

5. Find the file "servicetype_profilerc" and either delete or rename it.

Now your Plasma Desktop Shell will no longer crash.
