    In your favourite file manager enable "View hidden files" have a look in
    your home dir for .wine and burrow down to the directory of the game and
    delete it, it should not make any problems at all.

    If it foes cause probs with further installs of games with wine then just
    delete that directory ( .wine ) and start again it will be recreated for you
    if you try and use wine again.

    No need to uninstall/re-install

    Apologies if this is a hijack, but does wine have a "registry" and does just deleting the folder leave "stuff" clogging it up, like it does in MsWin?

    Did you look at the post wakou pointed to?

    It's as easy as opening a terminal and typing:

    Code:
    wine uninstaller
    It gives you the same add/remove applications control center as in Windows.

    Take Care,

    Yes, but it's a fake folder version of the registry.

    You can delete the shortcuts in /home/user/.local/share/applications/wine/
