I am currently having problems with Hulu desktop, and want to reinstall it. However, when I attempt to uninstall and reinstall it, it saves my previous settings (even my username and password).

How can I get it to completely uninstall and reinstall, so that it doesn't remember any previous settings? A general solution would be nice, in case I ever run into a similar problem.

Can you provide some details about how you installed it, your distro, package manager, etc.? – jasonwryan Aug 27 '11 at 1:53

You need to remove your user configuration data. From what I've just tested, this resides in following files in your user's home directory:


Removing those should fix the problem. If not, try searching for more using find ~/ -name "*hulu*".
