To uninstall Microsoft Teams completely, you need to uninstall Teams as well as the Teams Machine-Wide Installer. If you cannot find the installer in the list of programs in Windows Settings, you might need to use the Powershell script provided by Microsoft to remove all traces of MS Teams. If you do not completely remove the installer, it will keep reinstalling Teams every time your computer reboots or you login to your computer. 

To remove via Windows Settings:

1) Type uninstall in the search box on the toolbar.
