After removing the kvm and kvm_intel modules, "modprobe kvm" and "modprobe kvm_intel" give no errors

"lsmod | grep kvm" gives me

    kvm_intel 137721  0 
    kvm       415550  1 kvm_intel

"lscpu" says "Virtualization: VT-x"

The Arch Linux wiki says that a user of kvm needs to be in the "kvm" group. I added both the user I log in as to do command-line work ("stack") and the "nova" user to the "kvm" group. I restarted all services and still hypervisor-show gives me "QEMU".

Any thoughts?
