[SOLVED] watchdog did not stop after uninstall

Hey guys!

I keep getting messages about watchdog when I reboot or shutdown.
First I did

sudo echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
cat /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
0

No effect.
Then added

kernel.nmi_watchdog = 0

to '/etc/sysctl.d/99-sysctl.conf'.
No effect.
Then I uninstalled it. No effect. I still get those messages.
How could that be?

getting messages about watchdog

There is not "watchdog", a watchdog is a concept and this can refer to various things why "messages" is absolutely meaningless.
So please get a bit more detailed on this.

I was so annoyed I forgot to include it

watchdog watchdog0: watchdog did not stop

edit:

 which watchdog
which: no watchdog in (/usr/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/default/bin:/usr/bin/site_perl:/usr/bin/vendor_perl:/usr/bin/core_perl:/usr/lib/jvm/default/bin:/usr/bin/site_perl:/usr/bin/vendor_perl:/usr/bin/core_perl)
journalctl -b | grep dog
213:Dec 17 04:15:55 ahp kernel: NMI watchdog: enabled on all CPUs, permanently consumes one hw-PMU counter.
244:Dec 17 04:15:55 ahp kernel: NMI watchdog: enabled on all CPUs, permanently consumes one hw-PMU counter.
1044:Dec 17 04:16:31 ahp rtkit-daemon[701]: Watchdog thread running.

edit2:
Found the solution -
in '/etc/modprobe.d/watchdog.conf'

blacklist iTCO_wdt 
blacklist iTCO_vendor_support

Plus in 'grub'

nmi_watchdog=0
