I tried to install MS Office 2007 through Wine. Now that I have uninstalled Wine, and when I search the term "word", the Microsoft Office Word Icon still appears. How do I remove it completely from my system? I deleted the .wine folder too, but the icons still appear once I search the term "word".


Friends, I finally sorted out this weird problem. As soon as I deleted the contents of /home/username/.local/share/applications/wine the icons were gone! But anyways, thanks a lot for giving me hints. Your comments helped me sort out this problem!
