unblock frequently visited sites

I'm using the new Chrome beta version I was trying to adjust the pages that show up on my new tab page and even though I clicked the pin to keep certain pages on there, but when I clicked the x on some of the other pages, some of which were duplicates on of some of the ones I pinned, they were removed from the list. Now, even after clearing browsing history and visiting those sites several times, the still won't show up in the list. How can I unblock pages from the most visited list?

ok, i will post here a good fix and if it works i hope people will link here so we will have just one place for this mess

close chrome first!!!!!!

right click your chrome shortcut (also works from the quick launch area) and chose properties
there should be an open file location there, so open this location
go to the parent folder (Backspace will do it) and chose the user data folder and then default folder
there should be a file there called preferences 
double click it, and tell windows to open it in notepad

now scroll down till you see the

      "most_visited_blacklist": {
         "5e22676eef66a2ce01d9fadac2018fdc": true

it will have some entries which look something like what i posted above
delete these :true entries
so it will look like this

      "most_visited_blacklist": {

save the file
close notepad

and you are done

please let me know if this works, so i can point other users here
The new version is Time for an upgrade.
