    Deleting all oracle services.

    How would I go about delteting all oracle services from control panel/admin tools/services? I have tried with out success to log on to an oracle sid through the command prompt, I have deleted all that I can from the registry.
    Thanks.

    Hi.

    You need to delete the Oracle entries under the following path in the registry:

    \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

    There will be a few of them all begining with Oracle...

    You should also consider removing the whole of:

    \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE

    Once this is done you will need to reboot your machine and they should all be gone. You can then delete the remaining files on your filesystem and you're pretty clean.

    Remember, any DLLs will still be registered unless you did an uninstall using the Universal Installer. That shouldn't matter as they are not being used, and if you reinstall they will be replaced.

    Also note that manually messing around with the registry can be dangerous. Do it at your own risk.

    Cheers

    Why dont you go to WWW.Microsoft.com and do a Search for "delete service", you will get exe which can delete any service with service name being the parameter.

    Firstly, thanks TimHall, I will give it a go.

    Secondly, thanks abhaysk I will look this utility up.

    SANJAY_G, I tried that method, I could not make a connection to get to the oradim utlility. The reason I suspect is that I performed an un-install with the universl installer, then deleted all oracle directories, then finally deleting all but what TimHall mentioned in the registry.

    Thanks all, hopefully I will not be back here for the same problem again.

    Talking deleting oracle services

    Thank you for your help TimHall and abhaysk. Though I used TimHall's assistance, I found the program that abhaysk suggested and will study it further.
    Thanks.

    Excuse me? You're the one with the reading problem. That's why I used short, monosyllabic words - to make it easier for you to understand the instructions. Further, if you had bothered to read any documentation, including a personal reference book or two, you wouldn't have been here asking a dumb question.

    Steven,

    I think questions of the same nature/knowledge level will keep coming up again and again. Playing the bouncer is not gonna help the guys here. I can understand that you have the "coveted"(huh?)moderator title now so you're on a new high. So stop f**king around and try to help out guys here. Your sorryass wisecracks aren't funny (they never were...)
