Mysql was acting weird so i decided to delete the mysql data folder (but not install folder) and it corrupted. After trying to repair i simply uninstalled it from the control panels. The services are still showing up. How do i remove it?

How do i remove (any) services i dont want?

Services are located in the registry at the following location, they do not always reflect the same name as they do in Windows Services, so be careful what you delete or the operating system may no longer work or boot.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

After you delete the appropriate mysql service, a reboot will be required.

You can use "Autoruns" to find and delete any service (under the tab "Services"):
