Delete your XML folder, and any extra exe files it gave you (like swmod.exe), beyond the normal game files. Basically the mods use XML, so deleting the XML folder and running the normal EXE should return you to normal.

Now some mods throw in a "Scripts" and "Resources" folder. Delete those (or move them to a seperate backup folder as well, so deal with those too.

If in doubt, just check the zip or rar file of the original mod you installed. Look in and just remove the files it lists from your EaW directory.

I also need help with uninstalling mods, I just need the original config.meg file from the demo.

What ever happened to old fashioned reinstall? It takes like 5 minutes.

Deleting the XML folder (and possibly two other folders: Resource/Scripts) takes a few seconds! :)

Besides, they'd have to know to re-install it into a new folder to avoid being stuck in the same situation as before...
