I'm surprised anyone was able to read that mess of words... Punctuation. Please, PLEASE use it.

Removing and reinstalling Wine usually doesn't do much to its functionality, repairing really broken installations aside. But that doesn't seem to be the problem here as Wine worked fine for you before.

Try moving or deleting /home/your_username/.wine, if you haven't done so yet. Also try removing ALL Wine packages you see in Synaptic and then ONLY install the wine1.2 package (preferrably from the Wine PPA).

If Wine installs okay, try running a Windows app through the terminal and tell us what kind of terminal output you see.
