Removing a web app from Tomcat

I am having trouble removing deployed app from tomcat. I stop the server, delete the app from the webapp directory and then restart Tomcat but somehow the web application is restored. I am using windows 2000 with tomcat 3.2.4. What am I doing wrong?

I figured out what I was doing. Pretty dumb I was deleting the exploded war file but not the application.war file itself, so everytime I'd start the server it would get redeployed.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
