Here's my last resort method: Uninstall all Oracle components using the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI . !un regedit.exe and delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE "ey. #his contains registry entires for all Oracle products. $elete any references to Oracle services left behind in the following part of the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Servi e!/Or"# . It should be pretty obvious which ones relate to Oracle. !eboot your machine. $elete the %C$%Or" le% directory& or whatever directory is your O!'()*+,'-*. $elete the %C$%&rogr"'(File!%Or" le% directory. *mpty the contents of your %C$%te')% directory. *mpty your recycle bin.
