My guess is that it didn't purge the .wine directory. Try the purge
again & see if the .wine directory (/home/<username>/.wine also gets
deleted. If not, rename the directory to and then reinstall.
After you reinstall, don't run wine yet, instead run:

$ winecfg

and see if that comes up and you can configure.

If all else fails then I highly recommend the wine newsgroup:
