> In case you didn't know that is what 'rm -rf ~/.wine' does, plus few more helpful things. All in one command! Removing files without cleaning registry is WRONG and will harm even windows. It for sure _WILL_ break Wine or rather programs that see stuff in registry yet can't find it on the disk.
well, he didnt really want to remove all of his software installed
for the registry stuff i use ccleaner (www.ccleaner.de)
its a nice tool to clean up the windows registry and even works great in wine
