[Wine] Did I break Wine?

I am new to linux, and even newer to Wine.  I installed Wine on Ubuntu 8.04 with Synaptic to try and install Kidzui for my kids, which didn't work, because Kidzui requires Flash Player 8.0 and higher.   Anyways, I uninstalled KidZui, and then uninstalled Wine.  However after the removals, I still had a Wine>Installed Programs>Kid Zui entry showing up in my application menu.  So, I went to System>Preferences>Main Menu and deleted this entry, figuring Wine would recreate it when I reinstalled.

Now, I have reinstalled Wine, my Installed Programs entry is no longer present.  I have tried going to synaptic and doing a "Mark for complete removal" with no luck, tried installing and then running "apt-get remove --purge wine", then reinstalling with no luck.

Is there anyway to get wine back to a nice clean, proper installation?
