In your home folder there is a hidden folder name .wine. You can delete some software installed in wine there.

Hope this one help.

its a good idea to install large applications in separate directories like .wineoffice
all you need is run: export WINEPREFIX=~/.wineoffice
before using it.
then later simply delete the whole dir.
icons might need to be removed manually.

Are you sure? Try this in a terminal:

Code:
ls ~/.wine

You sure? If you have started wine before then it is there - just need enable "Show hidden files and folders" option or Ctrl+H shortcut.

Now go further inside that folder find some subfolder like drive_c and you will see contents of what is supposed to be "Local Disc|k C:" and then move further for example Program Files -> Your program and then uninstall.exe or delete it.
