Hi,

You need to also remove virtual machine, removing software alone will not do the job. Do you know where it was saved?

Delete the folder "VMWareMachines". Should be either at the root of your hard drive or the root of your Home folder. If you can't find it, do a Spotlight search.

by default, the virtual machine will be saved in your <user>/Documents/Virtual Machines folder.

Delete the Whole Folder Named Virtual Machines

Cheers
