Deleteing the file with the persistence framework settings won't revert the gridview default settings on itself. Instead, you will need to reset them manually (setting properties manually) or load some default settings from the bin file.
Can you send me some runnable code snippets that show how you implemented the saving loading and resetting the settings? This will help me to better understand your case and see if I could suggest a suitable approach for this.
