If you'd like to reset the front end to the state it was after you
installed Mathematica, hold CRTL and SHIFT while the front end is

If you'd like to reset the kernel, simply evaluate the command Quit[],
or quit the kernel using the front end menu system (Kernel -> Quit

If you work on a slow machine and restaring the kernel takes too long,
you may consider using the
package, which can be found in the AddOns/ExtraPackages/Utilities
folder. This package allows you to take the state of the kernel back
to the point when the package was read in. But it doesn't always work

I hope this helps.
