if i understand right,you want to remove live completly and then you want to reinstall it.ok...there`re a lots of files you must find:)
1.trash the prog
2.go to documents folder rm clips + lessons+all other ableton stuff
3.go to /Library/Application\ Support/Ableton\ Live\ Engine
4./Users/"YOUR NAME"/Library/Application\ Support/Ableton/ and then
/Users/"YOUR NAME"/Library/Application\ Support/Ableton Live Engine/
5./Users/"YOUR NAME"//Library/Preferences/Ableton/ and
/Users/"YOUR NAME"//Library/Preferences/com.ableton.live.plist/
thats it.
this must work :) good luck...am

Hello,

The complete re-installation procedure is:

* Start Live, go to Preferences/File Folders and write down the "Library Path"
* Uninstall Live from 'Control Panel/Software' (WinXP) or remove the application folder (Mac OSX)
* open Windows Explorer (WinXP) or Finder (OSX) and browse to the library  path
* Delete the Library folder (in fact the whole 'Ableton' folder) - please make sure you have not stored any personal projects inside this folder.
* Remove the preferences.cfg file which can be found here:

Mac OSX:
/user/library/preferences/ableton/live x.x/preferences.cfg

WinXP:
C:/documents and settings/[username]/application data/ableton/live x.x/preferences/preferences.cfg

*Note that on some Windows systems the application data folder is hidden by default. Here is what you have to do to make it visible:
   1. Launch Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer!).
   2. Select Tools/Folder Options/View.
   3. Check "Show hidden files and folders."

* reinstall (the latest) Live version

Best,
Christian

You need to delete your Preferences files from

c:/users/username/appdata/roaming/ableton/live/preferences/

Best,
