Thanks for the info, Chip.  The program didn't have an uninstaller - that's why I asked.  And I'd never heard of the Wine Control Panel even though I've been using Wine for several years.  Wonder why the developers don't make it more prominent.

Anyway, it worked and I learned something.  Thanks again!
