I think you can reset all Gnome settings by removing (make backup if necessary) the ".gconf" folder and all of it's contents in your home directory. You could do this by issueing "mv ~/.gconf ~/gconfbak" in a terminal window, log out and then login again. If it works and everything is ok, you can remove the gconfbak directory.
