Of course it's possible.

No problem.

Why on earth would you suggest a reinstall to get rid of program

It can remember what you installed initially. That's what the "clone
this system" box does.

Assuming he's using KDE, just delete the file

Open Kaffeine and choose the menu Settings -> Configure Kaffeine Player.
Click on the Misc icon and then click on the clear button.

There's absolutely no need for that. If all he's wanting is to delete
histories, that's a serious waste of time. It's still serious overkill
even if he wants to revert to how everything was at first login. Again,
for KDE, just log in at a console and delete $HOME/.kde. The next time
he uses the KDE desktop, the directory will be recreated and all
applications will revert to the default configuration.
