The config file has now gone, and all configuration is done through the
winecfg program.

The .reg files represent the Windows registry.  winecfg does store some
settings in the registry, so in a way, but not entirely.

If winecfg won't start due to a DLL override, you can remove the
override by editing user.reg.  Search for the
[Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides] section and remove any override that you
want to get rid of.
