You didn't remove the Hotfixes; that can only be done through Control Panel.

If anything all you did was delete the backups of them in the \Windows directory

If you turn on "Show all Files/Directories" and "Show Hidden System Files" and look in \Windows you'll see a bunch of $J#@()@# names in blue.

Yeah, all your hotfixes will still be there as enaberif said. I believe it removes the backups and the .txt files so no worries.
