Try to run uninstaller.

You could always just delete the links and "program files"

Is it a joke? :)
Do it just the same way as you have typed this post (and posts above, too). Don't forget to press <Enter> at the end of command. ;)

P. S. NB: You have to run this command in X Window session.

type in:

wine uninstaller

A box should pop up and it should be self-explainatory from there on.

Good luck mate!

ok I type wine uninstaller
and I got a box like control panel to add/remove programs.
But I can't see the I.E.6 I installed using IEs4Linux.
How do I remove or uninstall I.E.6.
May be I can just delete the I.E.6 exe from the program files and windows folders in /wine/drive c.
I doubt whether there is any other link to I.E.6 to delete?

Uninstaller is relatively new, keep that in mind when advising its use in the future. So it might not be present on all boxes yet. However, the uninstall.exe program is most times sitting somewhere where the program resides, and it should be runable using windows.

My guess is: look into ies4linux and see if it can do it. The uninstaller will not work because ies4linux doesn't install "the right way". Instead, it just uncompress all the stuff and copies the files to many places, putting some registry keys on the way.

If ies4linux can't remove it, your best bet is to rm -rf ~/.wine, be warned that that will completely wipe everything you installed under wine, and all the data generated on that subdirectories (docs, savegames or whatever).

In my wine uninstaller add/remove programs box there is program call Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable installed in my linux os.
I did not install any of this program myself.
It must had been installed by some other third party program without my knowledge.
I doubt if it this of any use keeping it there or can I just remove/uninstall it.
