I am having lots of problems and would like to reset everything back to a fresh factory state. What files or folders would I have to delete?

This is for AppleTV installation by the way. I am running 2.3.1 ATV software with the latest launcher 0.30 and xbmc 9.0.4 babylon, however I have old settings left over from the old xbmc install awhile back. I just wanna go head and start from a fresh slate.

Rename or delete guisettings.xml in your userdata.

delete /Users/frontrow/Library/Application\ Support/XBMC

then re-install xbmc from Downloads. This will create a few files specific for the ATV in the folder above.
