My two cents are either disconnct battery overnight or find fuse for MFT in manual and pull it out for some extended period.
Its unlikely to have any effect but who knows, at least you tried...
Disconnecting the battery resets a lot of other things too and should always be deemed as a last resort (unless done for safety while working on the vehicle).
The MFT has a "Reset" function that is supposed to delete all user data and roll it back to 'like new'.
There is also a downloadable zip file that will cause the MFT to do a full reboot. The file is not endorsed by Ford, but rather others extracted it from a Ford Update file. Reboot is really an option ford should have given us through the User Interface. Currently, the MFT does not shut down when you turn the vehicle off, it just goes to sleep, which is why restarting the car doesn't always clear up a problem. I won't endorse any one download location, but you can find the zip with google by searching for MFT delayed reboot.
