As Vitamin stated it is easy to restore your registry:

cd $HOME/.wine
(notice there are two .reg files)
cp system.reg system.old.reg
cp user.reg user.old.reg
wine regedit
(makes changes to registry and SAVES them)

It is that simple.  If you break the registry:
rm system.reg
rm user.reg
cp system.old.reg system.reg
cp user.old.reg user.reg

All changes are now gone and you should be able to run Wine again.
