Hello friends,
Recently i have updated my Ubuntu 8.10 and now I can install any windows application in Ubuntu. (I mean exe files, they run just like in windows). But I don't want it to be like that. So Pls help me to recover my machine to its previous state without reinsalling..
Thank you guys...

I don't understand...you don't want compatibility with Windows programs?
I can't understand why you wouldn't want that option :/

You definetly need WINE to open *.exe-s

Your post title says you want to run .EXE files (which you can only do if you have Wine or Crossover installed) but your text says you want to restore your machine to some previous state.

Regarding the second, there is no "System Restore" like in MS Windows. The only way to get back to the "initial state" (when you first installed Ubuntu), is to remove what you have and do a reinstall.

Mono is used to run cross-platform .NET applications. This includes Tomboy and F-Spot, that are installed by default in Ubuntu. There's not wrong in your system, and you won't be able to install non-.NET windows applications.
