I use a package called CleanSlate, available from MathSource.  I've seen 
complaints that it takes to long unloading large (multimegabyte) packages 
from memory, but in my experience the delays have been entirely tolerable, 
and it returns the kernel to a pretty viriginal state.  You could always 
kill the kernel and reload it, but on my machine (also a Windoze box) that 
takes a lot longer than CleanSlate does.

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen:  whenever you say something to them,
they translate it into their own language, and at once it is something
entirely different.                                    J. W. v. GOETHE
