Are you sure you didn't miss any step?

Did you remove the user from the confluence-users group? That's the most important step

You will need to go into a bit more detail about this one.

Confluence does not have "space restrictions".  At a space level, it implements permissive rights - if you want to let someone do something in the space (including just view), they you have to grant the user or a group that they are in, the right to do so.

Confluence does have page restrictions, but I don't think this is what you are worried about.

For the space level stuff, look at the permissions set for each space.  I suspect you have probably got a system where you've used the "can log in" group as a default space permission that also gives "can see space".  So when you add a user, they get access to a load of spaces because you have added them to the "can log in group"
