Subject [users@httpd] Windows 7 httpd.conf setting saved after un-install

First, I'm a seasoned professionaly and I know (mostly) what I'm doing. That

I uninstalled Apache because I couldn't get the DocumentRoot directory to
I deleted the Apache2.2 directory from my hard drive.
I emptied the trash can.
I rebooted the computer (after all it is windows)
I re-installed the latest version of Apache 2.2.21
I went to the Apache2.2/conf folder and opened the "httpd.conf" file (not
sample) in TextPad
The changes that I made to the file before re-installing it were still

I repeated this process 3 times, I even change the location where I
installed Apache with the same results.

Can anyone explain the Windows Miracle? Because, really, I would like a
clean httpd.conf file so I can start over.

like XP, Vista or 2008 etc... I'm not being a jerk, but the security model
in Windows 7 is batty. I also know that this would be solved my installing
Linux etc... Wish I could, but that isn't an option (at least not right
