I will start by saying this is not a duplicate of Uninstall a program installed with Wine nor How to uninstall a software that has been installed using wine?. I already "STFW" as adviced in the how to ask guide.
I've installed plenty of software using wine. However I want to get ride of a lot of it (not all). When I access the Wine Uninstaller I am able to uninstall the programs and then, they are back (Including that misterious and annoying program highligthed). Add/Remove programs

I have tried deleting the programs from the "C:/ Drive" and also I have tried what is stated in the How to delete Wine Programs? Guide.

Have you check if you are using the same prefix to uninstall your programs that the one where the programs are installed ? – MrVaykadji Jan 31 '14 at 22:31
@MrVaykadji Yes sir. – Hans Jan 31 '14 at 22:33
When you say "I have tried deleting in c:/", do you mean in ~/.wine/drive_c/Program \Files ? If you did so, are any files in that directory ? If there are any files, that means they are uninstalled, but you still have the shortcuts (and probably the registry keys). It could help to know^^ – MrVaykadji Jan 31 '14 at 22:40
That is what I mean, and yes, there was information there that I have deleted already. – Hans Jan 31 '14 at 22:44
@MrVaykadji yeah, let's say that I want to uninstall MSOffice, I ran the wine uninstaller and uninstalled it; I can't access it anymore nor on the unity dash or anyway. I access _ ~/.wine/drive_c/Program \Files_ and there are files which I delete. However when I access the Wine uninstaller the MSOffice entry appears there (and the annoying set of characters highlighted in the picture). – Hans Jan 31 '14 at 23:05

Solve by downloading Revo Uninstaller Portable:

Uninstall every program in Moderate Mode. Delete every Registry Key and any file or folder. Restart the program everytime.


Can't find a way to delete the misterious program highlgthed in the question image.
