    How did you install wine? Is an uninstaller bundled with the installer? Maybe you'd be better off posting here?

    Re download Wine, there is an uninstaller available in the virtual disk that's loaded when you open the .dmg file.

    Try this http://www.mediafire.com/?647cy84gam03grm it's from WineBottler, but should remove any traces of Wine on your system

    Wine can be installed from a variety of sources, and the files can end up in a variety of places. Can you please tell us exactly what .dmg you used to install wine, and where you obtained that .dmg?

    Please read this. There's even an "automatic remover" on that page.

    I tried to do exactly what you did, and after using AppCleaner to remove all the files, I noticed I still had the open with option left just as you did.

    Open up terminal (just type in terminal in spotlight), and try the following commands:

    rm -rf ./wine.*
    rm -rf ./wine*
    rm -rf ./.wine*
    rm -rf ./.wine.*

    One of these will remove the option for wine to appear, I just wasn't paying attention when I was attempting to get rid of it :eek: so I'm not sure which one. It shouldn't hurt your Mac, mine's working just fine after.

    oh, and don't rm -rf ./* by mistake, because that WILL hurt your Mac.

    With due respect, I think the OP would be better off using the uninstall script provided by the developer. :) See Post #9.

    (Unless you installed wine from the same source the Op did, his files may not be in the same places yours were.)

    The uninstall script from the developer is actually what I gave him earlier :p, so I assumed it didn't work.

    Oh! Maybe he didn't run it correctly.
