> I'm not sure what you mean by the "source"? I followed one of the wine installation guides. I can't remember which one though, soo.. I can find a folder called "winecomp" inside it, is the old version one.

In the terminal run

which wine

If it returns something like "/usr/local/bin/wine" then you previously compiled and installed Wine yourself. And that directory you indicated above "winecomp" is most likely the source.

If it is indeed the source dir you can 'cd' into it and run 'sudo make uninstall'. That should remove your self-compiled Wine.
