    Delete .conkyrc file that you made. Conky should default to system settings again then.

    Now you can start over again. We have a .conkyrc thread here on the forum. Just search for it. It is in the Coffee Lounge I think. Mark this thread as solved also with thread tools at the top of your 1st post in the tool bar above your post.
