How to totally remove IPFS (all config and everything)

Something on my system is preventing IPFS node from running and I can not seem to figure out what. I have tried reinstalling the IPFS but haven’t had any luck.

On *nix systems just remove the binary and ~/.ipfs/:

rm -rf ~/.ipfs/ $(which ipfs)

On windows the idea is the same but I don’t know the path of the .ipfs equivalent.

rm -r ~/.ipfs worked!
