It might be far simpler to just back up personal files, while you still 
can, and just install the thing clean. All of the cruft will be gone. 
Me, I keep all of my personal files on another partition, with things 
like Documents, Desktop, Music, Videos, Pictures in my home directory 
linked to that partition and it's corresponding directories.

Then at new release time, I install fresh, leaving that partition alone. 
I don't backup the /home directory as I don't even want old config files 
to remain. Nary one problem. It's a thought and just my 2 cents. Ric
