please help with detailed steps to unstall oracle 8.05.
i plan my uninstallation in these steps.-
stop all oracle services in control panel
using database assistant to unistall the oracle software
then finally delete the oracle files on on the my computer.

- Shutdowm all services
- physically delete all oracle directories ( if no database in it )
- delete all environment variables
- delete all Oracle services manually from NT registry
- restart machine and install new Oracle
