It used to do that, a long time ago, but was just a heap of problems.
We disabled changing the C drive in winecfg because so many people
hosed windows installs.

Treat Wine like a new windows machine. Reinstall what you need fresh.
The advantage with wine is that you can separate apps by prefix, so
you can semi-sandbox each application (registry/settings wise, file
access is another story).
