By shorting the CMOS battery, it resets your BIOS back to their original default settings. It only restores the BIOS & nothing else related to the OS & Programs. The easiest way to do so is, turn the power off, disconnect the PSU, remove the battery for 10 minutes (minimum), and reinstall everything. This will reset your CMOS.
