Cant open a new default file in Blender 2.5 Mac!

Hi I’m new here!
I am also new to Blender…I’m having an annoying problem where I cant open a new default file -ie:(where you see default cube with lamp and camera) …instead when I click file-> new …I get a previously worked on project .

I don’t know how to explain my problem any better…maybe it has something to do with my preferences …but I don’t know where to start.

hope someone can shed some light on my problem.

Use the File / Load Factory Settings menu entry. Then use Ctrl+U to save this as your new default blend.

WOW! that simple!..I feel foolish:P thanks so much Richard this was annoying me for hours and I felt silly for even posting a thread !
