I consider myself an advocate of free software but in many points I don't agree with Richard Stalman. Currently I'm studying "Elektro- und Informationstechnologie" (a short translation would be "electronics") at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

comment malware migrating beetween partitions
In case of laptops it can even be possible that malware hides itself in the battery and infects systems from there (there exists some proof of concept malware out there youtube.com/watch?v=i3Fcx009BgE ). But you shouldn't be concerned about that stuff, it's probably more likely to win millions in the lottery than getting infected by the kind of malware you described.

Have you considered using playonlinux? This way you can use different wine versions than provided by Ubuntu without messing up your system.

comment Windows is not booting any more after resizing “/”
You can get windows repair cds in the internet and you can even download Windows 7 Installation CDs from Microsoft (Just google for Windows ISOs, for 7 they are provided from Microsoft as 60 day trials [Profressional and Home Premium, but that doesn't matter, because you can use anyone for recovery purposes]).

comment Installing WINE as a brand new Ubuntu User
playonlinux makes it a lot easier to manage wineversions, you can install it via sudo apt-get install playonlinux or via the software center!

comment Windows is not booting any more after resizing “/”
You might try to repair the windows bootloader via the windows repair DVD and after that recreate GRUB via chrooting into your Ubuntu partition.

comment Installing applications temporarily
@rajagenupula Then turn only those directories that the apps are installed to into a sandbox ( if you make an overlay for /usr /lib* /bin /sbin /etc /var /opt ... don't know exactly what filesystem structure ubuntu is using, but about everything except for home)
