Nagios Nagwin StartService FAILED 1069

I was trying to start Nagwin_Nagios and I was getting the error "[SC] StartService FAILED 1069: The service did not start due to a logon failure."

I had recently removed Nagwin (the Windows distribution of Nagios) and when you uninstall Nagwin it doesn't remove the users nagiosadmin and svcNagwin from the computer. To fix the problem just delete these two users from Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer > Management > Local Users > Users and you'll be good. I'd also recommend deleting the rest of the directory, not all of it is removed during uninstallation.
