From time to time, I have seen grizzled veterans on this and other forums say that if you remove the fsx.cfg file from your FSX folder and then start up FSX, the program will build you a new one! This is said to fix the source of many errors, crashes, glitches, etc.

1. Is this really a good idea?

2. Are there any risks? ("If something can go wrong, it will go wrong." -- Murphy's Law)

3. I've never quite understood the .cfg file. Does it reflect where you've put all your sliders? If you remove your .cfg (and stash it elsewhere, like Desktop), will FSX build one that moves all your sliders back to the defaults?

Thanks all,
