Look for a folder called C:\Documents and Settings\<YourUserName>\VirtualBox VMs or C:\Users\<YourUserName>\VirtualBox VMs. This is the default folder that VirtualBox saves the virtual hard disk files to. It's likely that these wouldn't be removed during the uninstall since the user might want to save them.

If you're sure you don't want to keep the saved VMs you can delete this folder.
