Windows 7: User Profile Reset

User Profile Reset

Is there a way to reset a user profile to default settings? I basically want all the services to startup that would normally startup on a fresh install, desktop and video settings to reset, etc.

Creating a new user probably wouldn't do it either right? It would give you a base desktop, etc, but not do anything to services running which would be set by the admin.

Thanks!

Services are global, so what is running for one usually runs for all. there is no "reset" per se, but there are many sites (ie blackviper.com) That can tell you what the default settings are for them all, and you could set them manually.

How do I restore security settings to the default settings?
