This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

probably not, it is about changing the icon but i want to remove it – vipin8169 Sep 10 '12 at 9:57
If the Wine launcher icon does not have a right-click context menu with locking toggle, that is a bug. This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions on filing a bug report are here. – Jjed Sep 11 '12 at 14:46

What I can suggest is a workaround:

First install dconf-tools package:

$ sudo apt-get install dconf-tools

Run dconf-editor using launcher or terminal. Then navigate to desktop -> unity -> launcher. There you can delete the entry you want to remove from launcher.
