Reset Compiz in Ubuntu 11.04

If your window title bar is gone. or you have messed the compiz in any other way in Ubuntu. Just open up a terminal and enter the following command:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1

Then Logout and Login back.

As commented by zwergnase, the above command should also be followed by:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compizconfig-1

Its resets all the Compiz settings to the system default.

after running the command, all menu items and launcher disappear! Could you please also put a further explanation that this command can be followed by

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compizconfig-1

so that you can get your menu & launcher back again... It took a great amount of time+ stress until I resolve this issue!
