Every time I remove or install anything to do with Microsoft, either it be fonts or dependencies for wine.

I constantly find my theme messing up. Does anyone know why this happens?

Please and thank you.

Wine should not do anything to the Ubuntu theme. I think you should file a bug report with Wine.

Perhaps you're replacing an Ubuntu font with a Windows font with the same name? Please, see this note, which is in the package ttf-mscorefonts-installer:

NOTE: the package ttf-liberation contains free variants of the Times, Arial and Courier fonts. It's better to use those instead unless you specifically need one of the other fonts from this package.

Best regards.
