This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have removed a client machine from the console and also have uninstalled the agent. How would i go about also removing from the database?

Is there something more simple, i just have to remove one machine.

If you delete it from the console, you have deleted it from the database.  Go to Manage->Computers, right click on the machine you want to remove and select Delete.  Have you already done this and you are noticing that something is still in the database?

If you deleted it from the console, you deleted it from the database.  I'm not sure what you read elsewhere, but the computer no longer exists in the database once you delete it.

Does this help?
