    Go into your user's preferences and delete your terminal perferences, that will reset your display.

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Terminal.plist

    It's not very clear what you're after, really. I don't see why you would want to clear your Terminal preferences, as suggested above ^^, since that will wipe out all Terminal settings.

    The prompt strings is encoded in the PS1 (and PS2) environment variable and is documented in the bash man page.
