Delete your hidden /home/<username>/.wine folder. If you still have a menu entry for wine, use your menu editor to delete the entry.

By the way, there is no need to install the winblows version of vlc, you should have vlc available in your repositories. If not, find and install the rh .rpm binary.

here is the menu editor

As far as your situation I have to agree with the previous post. You are better off using yum to install the native linux version of VLC. I would also recommend taking a look at openoffice as opposed to MSoffice.
