If you use a recent build, then you can just delete the config file.
If you use the release candidate 2, you can seek Code::Blocks' key in the registry and delete that.

I purpose that a new option be added within codeblocks to reset the settings back to the default installed settings

You could do "codeblocks.exe --clear-configuration" (from the command line). That block of code inside app.cpp doesn't do anything besides pop-up a message box nowadays IIRC. So that isn't much help......

This is spam, but we must not reply, unless we want to create more spam.

Don't worry, these messages are pruned.
The only downside is that if they keep on coming, we 'll have to turn guest posting off...
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

No, with other measures. The spammer's IP has been banned and a complaint email has been sent to his ISP.
