It was - you don't need to be subscribed to post to this list.

If you're using a binary version, then there will be log files (the
troubleshooting guide explains where to find them).  If you're using the
source, then there won't be any.

Your configuration and training data are deliberately not removed when you
uninstall/reinstall.  You'll find the configuration in a file called
bayescustomize.ini, which will be in your data directory.  The
troubleshooting guide explains where to find that, too.

If you open up the file, it should have a line starting with
"http_user_name" and one with "http_password".  Delete those, or change
them, and things should work again.
