    I'm not sure what you're trying to do here.

    Regardless, most of your problems will be remedied by an Archive and Install. Have fun.

    As great as an Archive & Install is, it'll preserve the user settings. So, tell us which settings you've changed and we'll be able to help you more. :)

    I'm not really sure what's going on. Do you still have an issue after the reinstall? If so, you'll have to tell us more about your system and what you've just done. :)
