Still got GWX folders in system 32 after removing all the KBs

I have removed all the KBs listed below in the how to remove win10
But as the first picture shows I still have two GWX folders in my system32 folder.
What have I missed.

What's in the GWX folder? If it's empty, don't worry about it. One of those isn't a folder it's an entry in the event log. Again, nothing to worry about.

If it's empty then yes it's fine to delete.
