Not that they are bad just that I don't use them.

I tried to remove all material from the program folder but then the printer settings was reset. I can't create my own materials and profiles

    take a look into your C:\Program Files\Cura 2.6\resources\quality folder. close cura and delete any .inst.cfg file (make a backup just in case). restart cura. are the profiles gone?

    haven't tried it, but it seems plausible that this would work

    Don't remove *all* materials, just the ones you don't use. If you remove the material currently set as the active material for your printer, Cura cannot load your printer anymore. Generally you'll want to keep the general_* materials.

    Hmm, I renamed the quality folder and created a new one(to make a copy), now I can't manage my own profiles.

    Don't do that. You can remove the subfolders from the quality folder if you want, but it is better to leave the rest of the files. At the very least, Cura needs the normal.inst.cfg file.

    Ok thanks

    Then I don't understand when to use Material settings and when to use profiles.

    Profiles saves Material settings.
