Wiping out Current Windows 2003 INF Security Template

Good Morning,

We have just applied an INF template to a server and some of the software installed is no longer running.  What we want to do is completely wipe out the current template and start from scratch.  What is the easiest way to do this?

    Why not apply the default template?
    You should have saved a template before you applied your custom template, that would have been the only way to wipe it out.

    I was thinking that, but I wasn't 100% what the name of the default template was.
