Can't seem to remove SDM

Of all the things i've read it seems pretty simple to remove, but I don't even seem to have the files on my flash that run it, so i'm a little confused why it's not removing itself.. I thought maybe it was a physical device so I cracked open the router and there's nothing different than a regular device

This is 2811 router, ive tried defaulting and formatting the device, is it on the nvram maybe? if so, how do I go about removing it from there?

Cisco suite guide says, """""""

Procedure 1-Remove Cisco SDM from Flash RAM

In order to remove Cisco SDM from flash memory, complete the following steps in EXEC mode

Step 1

Use the following command to verify that the sdm.tar file is in flash RAM:

Router# show flash:

The result of this command should include the sdm.tar file if the full version of Cisco SDM is loaded on the flash memory

If sdm.tar is present in flash RAM, go to step 2.

If  the result of this command shows the following files, Cisco SDM Express  is in the flash memory, so skip step 2 and go to procedure 2 for the  Cisco IOS Software upgrade

• home.shtml

• sdmconfig-<Router series>.cfg

• home.tar

• es.tar

• common.tar

• wlanui.tar (this file is available only if WLAN application is available on the router)

Step 2

If Cisco SDM (sdm.tar file) is present in the router flash RAM, then use the following command to remove the sdm.tar file:

Router#delete flash:sdm.tar

Delete filename [sdm.tar]?

Delete flash:sdm.tar? [confirm]

""""""

What I do:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) is installed on this device.

This feature requires the one-time use of the username "cisco"

with the password "cisco". The default username and password have a privilege level of 15.

Please change these publicly known initial credentials using SDM or the IOS CLI.

Here are the Cisco IOS commands.

username <myuser>  privilege 15 secret 0 <mypassword>

no username cisco

Replace <myuser> and <mypassword> with the username and password you want to use.

For more information about SDM please follow the instructions in the QUICK START

GUIDE for your router or go to http://www.cisco.com/go/sdm

Can't seem to remove SDM

What you see is in the startup-config. Do a "write erase" and reload the router. After that all should be gone.
