There is a very good article on Metalink (Doc ID #124353.1) which describes in detail how to manually remove Oracle components on the Windows platform. At a high level, the steps you need to take to uninstall Oracle are as follows:
  • Ensure you are logged in as a user with Administrator privileges.
  • Stop all Oracle services (if any are running).
  • If possible, remove the Oracle software by invoking the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) and remove the software.
  • Remove the entries in the Windows registry (be very careful doing this!).
  • Clean up environment settings.
  • If you could not use the OUI to uninstall the software, delete the software and icons at this point.
  • Empty the recycle bin.
