That's just a mime handler option; it should be easy to change or mask.

I'm afraid I tend to know my way around the config files more than
the GUI, but if you sign in as root, you should be able to get to
a Mime type dialog, where you can configure that.  You may have to do it
both for the browser and for the OS in general.

Of course, that will just obfuscate things, rather than prevent Wine's use,
but it should be obfuscated enough to prevent most kids from giving it a go.
