Delete the wineprefix from within your file manager, as recommended by the first paragraph in secion 4.4 of the FAQ.

>From what you describe, my guess is that you tried to type the commands yourself rather than copying/pasting as the FAQ specifies, and you mistyped something (probably put a space between the / and .). There is no way to undo that command. The OS will have to be reinstalled and your documents restored from a backup (if you have one).

If you have further questions, please post them on https://forum.winehq.org/. The developer's list is not meant for user support.
