how exactly did you delete all that extra software? any software that installs services like you mention likely was installed using installers. in that case it has to be uninstalled using uninstallers too. the uninstallers should be provided with those programs. I suggest you look for them and use the uninstallers. also, do look in keyboard system preferences->keyboard shortcuts->services. see if any of those services are listed there. if so disable them.
No, those services-shortcuts are NOT shown in the "Service" list in Keyboard system preference, but the system still keep the record of global keyboard shortcut to an already-removed service. I've tried the "Restore Defaults" button, it didn't work.
Only few of these 3rd party softwares provide uninstaller, and most of them won't really clean-up all files. Google "FusionVMDKPlugIn.plugin" to see the example. Maintaining applications such as CleanApp can only trash the application, stuffs in ~/Library/ApplicationSupport and plist files. I've to traverse through ~/Library and /Library to manually remove all dashboard widgets, contextual menu items, ServicesBundles, and other files generated by those "service" items.

well, I don't know what's going on then. I've never see the popup you are describing even if some global services shortcuts are set. it still seems that one of those 3rd party programs you used installed some stuff that was not deleted.
try deleting the following items though
~/library/preferences/pbs.plist and ~/library/preferences/byhost/com.apple.HIToolbox...
