Create a new account on the machine. Log into the new account. Delete the old account. That should pretty much bring you back to a stock system.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
