Delete the file config\prefs.xml and restart HM.
A new file will be generated.
It will be necessary to reconfigure your Hud after the restart.

Please make sure that you are really deleting the files prefs.xml and not only one of the backup copies like prefs.xml_1.yx.yyy.

It may be necessary to disable "hide known file extensions" in the windows folder options.
And please check the holdemmanager installation path. It may be possible that you have 2 or more holdemmanager installations on your computer and you are deleting the file in the wrong folder.
