After deleting the .desktop files I got rid of the stupid "open with Windows notepad" and "open with Windows Paint" menu options that were set as default by WINE, yes. I can also run WINE applications as I could before. The only things it removes are the stupid menu items to open everything with a WINE program.
I haven't come across anything as moronic as WINE taking over the defaults in Linux before -- it really is a horrible reminder of how Windows functions. I cannot state enough how pathetic and ridiculous WINE installs are.
