You probably have to stop insisting on using applications that were made specifically for other OSes. I gave up Wine a long time ago, for instance. It's just not that easy trying to figure out where they were stored when they're installed and how they co-exist with Linux filing system. It's complicated just thinking about it. If you want the app made in Windows, run it in Windows.
Before I started switching to Linux I first assessed what apps I needed, what I can give up, what I can't, alternatives in Linux, etc. Luckily before I did I was already using apps like Gimp, Inkscape, Blender, OpenOffice, etc., all of which have stable Windows versions. It became just a matter of changing OS. The constant need to install virus checkers is what made me started using Windows rarely. I don't know what it is but every time I visit this popular sports forum the ads keep popping up and they're all over the place. The virus checkers I was using were not even working.
