    I also found this on the web :

    1. Stop all it's services (sid, listener, agent, and http).

    2. Start the registry editor: Choose Start -> Run -> regedit

    3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE Delete the Oracle Key

    4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC and expand all subkeys and remove all keys under here which are related with the "Oracle ODBC Driver"

    5. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services and remove all keys under here that begin with ORACLE or ORAWEB.

    6. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Application and remove all keys under here that begin with ORACLE.

    7. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and remove any entries related to Oracle.

    8. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, remove all keys that begin with Ora or ORCL (e.g. Oracle..., ORADC..., ORAMMC..., OraOLE..., OraPerf... and ORCL...).

    9. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes, remove all keys that begin with Ora or ORCL (e.g. Oracle..., ORADC..., ORAMMC..., OraOLE..., OraPerf... and ORCL...).

    10. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Oracle, delete this ORACLE key.

    11. Go to HKEY_USERS\?\Software\Oracle, delete this ORACLE key.

    12. Close the registry

    13. Choose Start > Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Environment tab

    14. At "System Variables" click on the variable PATH in order to modify the value. For example, you may see a path similar to this one: C:\ORACLE\ORA81\BIN;C:\PROGRAM FILES\ORACLE\JRE\1.1.7\BIN

    15. If an %ORACLE_HOME% was installed, remove this %ORACLE_HOME%\BIN path.

    16. If JRE was installed by Oracle, remove the JRE path.

    17. Check if there are any other Oracle variables set in "System Variables", ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID, TNS_ADMIN, JSERV or WV_GATEWAY_CFG. If these variables exist, delete them too.

    18. Click on APPLY and OK

    19. Close the Control Panel window

    20. Choose Start -> Programs -> Windows NT Explorer


    22. Delete the following Oracle related icons:

    - Oracle Installation Products
    - Oracle for Windows NT - Dev6i
    - Oracle Reports 6i - Dev6i
    - Oracle Olap Client 2.2 - Dev6i
    - Oracle9i Lite
    - Oracle - OraHome92

    23. Go to %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Oracle and delete this directory

    Note: In order to successfully delete all files, you may have to reboot your computer first, in order to clear Operating System locks on those files

    24. Go to the temporary directory and delete all files and directories in here

    25. Go to the drive where the Oracle software is installed on your machine and delete all ORACLE_BASE directories on your hard drive

    26. Close the Windows NT Explorer

    27. Empty the recycle bin Right click on Recycle Bin -> Empty Recycle Bin.

    28. Reboot your computer.
