Deleted games did not free up disk space

Specs: Windows xp
I've uninstalled about 15 games off my lap top. But I'm not getting the space back on my computer. Are they stored somewhere else that I've got to go into and delete them for good?

look under programs to see if their folders still exist.

you did clear recycle bin right?

might want to run disk cleanup.

Hw did you do the uninstallation? Did you use the game uninstaller (if there is one) or did you do it from the Add/Remove Program in the Control Panel? Or did you just deleted the shortcuts on the desktop?

I removed them from the control panel (remove/uninstall programs) and that took it off my desktop. Do you know what binary (?) files are. I just thought if you remove something that it is gone, but evidently, it can still be stored somewhere in your computer.
