SDR-Bridge Help Needed

Ed,
I installed SDR-Bridge on Friday and had it working as advertised, but later in the day I had a graphics problem with the PC and had to shut it down.  Since then I've only been able to get one Skimmer to work.  I'm pretty sure my settings file is corrupt, but I can't figure out how to delete it and start afresh.  I've deleted the IQ.ini files, deleted and removed SDR-Bridge and CW Skimmer, done a registery clean to try to remove any traces, but apparently there are hidden files that aren't being removed.  I'm also getting an error message when I try to close CW Skimmer.  See the attached screen shots.  Any help would be appreciated.

Try shaking the panadapter of the slice associated with this skimmer. Make sure the DAX channel is chosen in the slice

Tried that...no luck.  You'll also notice that the IQ2 is only indicating a single frequency and not a stream, although the VFO slice frequency varies as it should when the slice is tuned.

Rick,
   You should be aware that Windows can re-arrange the audio devices ( dex, etc) anytime a device is added/removed.. And then again when the system is rebooted.. When something audio (DAX) related breaks  verify the selections each time your start up the app..

Thanks.  I realize that there is no persistence in the DAX settings and I reset that regularly.  I'm sure this problem has to do with the settings file for Bridge, but I can't figure out how to delete and reinitialize that file. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't help, nor does a total reset of the 6500 to factory defaults.  Right now the only IQ stream that will create a working Skimmer is #3.
