You need to do a restart to apply the changes.

A good rule of the thumb.

Anytime one remove something from a system, what ever method is use, it's good to do a restart.
Sometimes a restart will allow the complete uninstall.
The reason for this is; sometimes when you think you have uninstall something it is still running. When you do a restart it turns off the still running program and removes it.
