SSH into the box and navigate to /storage/.xbmc/addons and "rm -rf <skin_folder_name>" then "reboot" - XBMC will default back to Confluence if it cannot find the configured skin when it restarts.

sorry to sound stupid but iam new to this when you say SSH into th box where exactly do i do that as i can get into anything on it?

run THIS, select SSH protocol, and create a connection to the IP address of your HTPC

username = root
password = openelec

it will prompt you to store the HTPC ssh key info (click ok) and then you should have a command shell where you can type:

rm -rf /storage/.xbmc/addons/<name_of_the_skin_folder>

replace <name_of_the_skin_folder> with the name of the skin folder, probably skin.something
