    why I cannot remove Wine?

    I want (need) to reisntall my Wine in order to get working my MS Word!

    MS Word suddendly started only opening texts in italics. Every word were italicized.

    Then I'm trying to reinstall Wine to have it ok.

    But I have put the command ...sudo remome wine... but it has been running for almost 10 minutes!

    Is it normal? what else could I do?

    Thanks.

    It is pointless re-installing wine - instead go to your home folder and delete the hidden wine files which will reset wine.

    Yes your personal folder (/home/"usernamehere")

    It is hidden files so push Control + H to unhide everything.
