[QUESTION] How to reset CS:S to absolute default?

Hi guys. So I installed a config which I didn't like at all, so I removed it, but some settings from it is still present even though it gone. I remember that there's a command you can do to remove it, but I don't know which. I've tried:

removing cstrike and adding -autoconfig
writing "exec config_default" in console.
Removed support for steam-cloud both out and ingame.
writing "Exec lab" in console.

Any help is appreciated!

Typing Exec lab will reset all your settings to default. It'll also freeze your game for awhile, so you need to give it some time. You could also get rid of your actual config, not autoconfig. (Check your steam folder)

To reset to default config:

Delete all config files
Add in launch options
"-autoconfig +cl_cloud_settings 0"

Well, it's mostly all the cl, r_ and mat commands I want to get rid of, and just resetting my bindings isn't really the struggle

I too don't believe all the settings are cleared by "-autoconfig +cl_cloud_settings 0".

Some things still seem to persist.

I think Valve really should provide a "reset to defaults" option that clears everything, clears steam cloud, clears key bindings, clears registry settings, any setting anywhere reset back to basics.

We should not have to jump through these crazy hoops.

Yeah, this is weird. Is it possible to figure out what cvars?

I think cvarlist will list all cvars with their default and current values.

Also there is another command I belive, that will list cvars that are not at default.

It'll be good to report those cvars, so maybe this would get fixed (if it's a bug that is)

Would call it a fact, after all of these steps, in every possible configuration - my mouse5 is still bound to "slot1".

1. Delete cstrike from ur drive
Code:
(c:/program files(86x)/steam/steamapps/%accountname%/counter-strike source) 
or a different location on ur computer.
2. Set launch options
Code:
-autoconfig +cl_cloud_settings 0
3. Open registery (regedit on run/start/search) and browser to this:
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Source\cstrike
delete the settings folder, then verify game cache files on steam and start the game.

This should make sure everything is clean and empty, remove the -autoconfig parameter after you've launched it once and keep the cloud settings off to prevent steam from backupping ur cstrike which you don't want aynmore.

Goodluck.

Also delete every .cfg-file in the following folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\accountname\counter-strike source\platform\config\
