Applications > Wine > Uninstall Wine Programs

Some things dont show up in that list for me so you might just have to go to browse C: and delete the program's folder

Remove the program with


sudo apt-get --remove wine

Remove configuration files with


sudo rm -rf .wine

sudo apt-get --remove wine

Remove configuration files with


sudo rm -rf .wine

This command does not uninstall wine? It seems faraz_k86 wants only the utorrent uninstalled.

don't try either of those, that'll remove wine

just go to

accessories => uninstall wine software

It'll bring up a windows like add/remove panel

edit: I looked back and yes hittingsmoke was right, my advice though to WWSmith is if you don't know what your saying don't post, those kind of answers just make things worse
