If you want your question answered it's better to choose a better title. Titles in the style of "help me" aren't very helpful - help us to help you.
How exactly did you uninstall those apps?

I have the same problem in the uninstaller application (it's a binary that comes shipped with the latest versions of wine, and acts as a centralized way to uninstall windows programs that were installed using wine.

My first guess is that it's some kind of leftover on the wine registry. however, I haven't bothered to investigate it. I really don't care too much. Unlike in windows, this small amount of crap only wastes some hard disk space, and nothing else.

PS: I also think that these kind of titles are not only useless, but they also have a negative effect in the feedback you are going to get. I, for one, ignore threads with this kind of title 99% of the times.
