    hi i presume you are using the Oracle Universal installer(OUI) to install and uninstall, are you? are you on windows or linux? The first preference is to uninstall with OUI, if you can't then follow the manual steps given below:

    Disclaimer: Do these at your own risk for windows

    # Stop any Oracle services that have been left running.
    Start->Settings->Control Panel->Services
    Look for any services with names starting with 'Oracle' and stop them.

    # Run regedit and delete the following keys (some may have slightly different names in your registry):
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ORACLE
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Application\Oracle.oracle
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\OracleDBConsole
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Oracle10g_home
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\OraclService

    Note that the services control panel will still show the old services until you reboot.

    # Delete the Oracle home directory
    C:\Oracle

    # Delete the Oracle Program Files directory:
    C:\Program Files\Oracle

    # Delete the Oracle Start Menu shortcuts directory:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Oracle*
    Where * indicates the name of your install. Look for and remove all Oracle directories from that location.

    # Remove Oracle refereces from the path. To edit your path go to:
    Start->Settings->Control Panel->System->Advanced->Environment Variables
    Edit both of the environment variables user PATH and system PATH. Remove any Oracle references in them.

    # Remove Oracle.DataAccess and any Polic.Oracle files from the GAC which is at:
    C:\Windows\assembly\

    Your system is Oracle free after this. So go ahead and now install a new instance of Oracle.

    It's like the OP's post but more compact, instead of using no sentence structure at all I removed sentence structure, vowels and spaces. Otherwise it's English.
