Completely Clean Out All Addons?

Hey. I want to get my gmod back to the basics, so I can keep track of what I am adding. I have cleaned out my addon folder, and I want to clean out the garrysmod\garrysmod folder. If I rename my garrysmod\garrysmod folder, will it automatically create a new one, so I can then delete the renamed folder? I have heard that method works, but I don’t want my gmod to crap its pants if I mess with the wrong folders. Please assist.

Yes, essentially whenever you start gmod it rebuilds its directory, so you could always move the folder out of the normal directory and then launch the game to have it create a new one. This tool might help you: http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=851903

Either delete the gmod folder or rename it, it will clean itself when you restart the game.
