Yes, you have to find where the software stores its settings (registry, ini file, for example) and change them manually.
Is it a internal software or can it be downloaded somewhere so I can have a look ?

no its internal software, by a company called epicor. where do programs usually store this info
It depends : either in registry or in files.
Get something like process monitor : http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/processmonitor.mspx it shows you file and registry activity : you can narrow it to that epicor software executable and see through the activity if you see something meaninful.

Otherwise, you can use InstallRite ( http://www.epsilonsquared.com/installrite.htm ) which will create a first snapshot. Then you will have to change a setting in the epicor program, and make the second snapshot in InstallRite which will display you which files and registry entries changed between the first and second snapshot.
you can try a system restore to a previous date, to get out quickly
Forced accept.
