Default After Unrooting 3 SuperSU files remain.

Guys, I have unrooted my phone which is a HTC one M8. Somehow i have these files remaining

/system/bin/su

/system/xbin/su

/system/app/Superuser.apk

They seem like they are undeleteable. I can't even drag the icon for supersu installer to uninstall. even using es explorer i locate these files and select them but again won't delete?

Am i doing something wrong? Can anyone Advise.

Thanking you in advance. While these traces remain certain banking apps still think phone is rooted.

He can run the unsupersu.zip using a TWRP install. But I think I've already explained to him what to do in the above mentioned thread. JKust don't understand why he's double posting this question.
