Can you please detail the issues that you are having with X2 on your system?
 
Perhaps we can get them sorted out for you.  If not, then uninstalling X2 and installing again would do it, but let's take a look at what your problems are first.

Ok. I am using loop banks in the matrix and recording them to the time line. The matrix is recording the various loops to the time line but if i try to record an audio track simultaneously it does not record the audio. Don't know if i explained that well. What im trying to do is have my verse, chorus, bridge ect loops in the matrix and capture them as i trigger them and record a scratch vocal track at the same time. It works fine on X2 installed on another hard drive and on x1 as well. But there is some setting that is preventing the audio track from being recorded-even though it looks like it is. anyway i was hoping there was some config file i could delete and just go with the factory settings...i know that it works fine out of the box

I have no idea of what to do with that one.
 
Can you explain what you meant by it working on X2 on another hard drive?  Do mean on a separate computer?

if you really feel the need to reinstall it will only take less than an hour to restore sonar back to its default settings by re-installing sonar x2.
im not sure there is a reset to default settings, factory settings.
just explore all your options and back up your track templates, project templates, exc.
here's how to re-install sonar x2:
 
For a clean installation of SONAR X2 please try the following:
PRE-uninstall) Disable your Anti-Virus: this means all sheilds, most AV can be disabled right from the taskbar/notifications area by right clicking on your AV icon / disable permanently (this isnt actually permanently/See: *Important note). *Important to note- your Anti virus will not be disabled after your computer re-boots because it is set to start up in services.   
1) Completely un-install SONAR from your computer. This is normally done from Start | Programs | Cakewalk. This will not remove any of your project files or audio data.  
 
2) Next you will want to open the Run Command              
a) In Windows Vista and 7 this can be done by holding down the ‘windows’ key and pressing ‘R’               
b) In Windows 8 this can be done by holding down the ‘windows’ key and pressing ‘R’ the typing in CMD in the message box/press enter
       
3) At the prompt type regedit and click OK.   ***Backup your Registry before making edits - you do this by clicking the File menu, Export Registry File.  
 
4) Now delete the following Registry keys:   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cakewalk Music Software\SONAR Producer\X2 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Cakewalk Music Software\SONAR Producer\X2   *Please note that this will remove any effects presets and key bindings you may have made in Cakewalk. You can back these up separately if you like, using Options|Key Bindings, Tools|SONAR Plug-in Manager, and Options|Colors.  Hit F1 in these views for detailed instructions on how to do this.   *go to C/Cakewalk content/SONAR X2 Producer.(the SONAR X2 Producer folder has all your track templates, Cal scripts, project templetes, pro channel presets and other things you might want to look at before reinstalling incase you want to back those up  
 
5) Open the 'Run' command again.  
 
6) Copy and paste the following into the prompt:   %appdata%\Cakewalk  
 
7) This will open your Cakewalk Application Data folder, right-click on the SONAR folder and choose rename.  
 
8) Rename this folder SONAR X2 Backup.  
 
9) Open the 'Run' command again and type msconfig Click OK and then click on the Startup tab at the upper right of the window that opens.  
 
10) Uncheck all items listed, click OK, then restart your computer. You can always recheck those items again at a later time.   11) Then reinstall SONAR. Make sure to have any virus scanners disabled on installation. It is not required or recommended to turn off any windows services.
 
 
*A small note on steps 9 + 10 ( services)
let me explain how virus's work, some malicious software are linked to your windows start up. thus when booting the computer the virus starts automatically blocking you from installing any anti virus to remove the virus. thus blocking you from installing anything. there are a few other reasons as well http://forum.cakewalk.com/fb.ashx?m=1862515

Windows 8.1 X64 Sonar Platinum x64
Custom built: Asrock z97 1150 - Intel I7 4790k - 16GB corsair DDR3 1600 - PNY SSD 220GB
Focusrite Saffire 18I8 - Mackie Control

Charlie's instructions address your comment above about reinstallation = same problem.  One has to delete those other folders and registry keys to TRULY do a complete removal of a given installation of Sonar.

In "Your user directory/AppData/Roaming/Cakewalk/Your Version Of SONAR" delete or rename AUD.ini, Cakewalk.ini, TTSEQ.ini. The files will be rebuilt to factory default the next time SONAR is run. You can also try re-personalization. Start Sonar with the CTRL + SHIFT keys pressed, this will re-copy necessary files and reset some registry keys in case they became corrupted.
