You sure you did a complete reinstalled, format drive, etc or a repair of windows

If what you did was a simple re-install - then it's actually designed not to lose your data, programs and many settings to the best extent possible.

If you wanted to clear everything off then you need to reformat the hard drive first - this deletes everything, and you will just get the normal basic windows installation.
