Open task manager, and see if any vmware .exe are running. If there are it didnt get uninstalled. Also by default Auto boot of the vm is disabled, meaning you have to manually change the vm to auto boot, unless you did that It should be allocated at start up.

On the other hand this forum is for windows 7 so technical help will be based to windows 7.

You may want to try vmwares forums, They would be more suited to help you.
