You have to use opatch to:
- apply a patch
- roll back/remove a patch
- list installed patches.

in patch set readme.txt file you can find out which opatch utility you need to use.

and for exisiting opatch utility you can find through "opatch lsinventory" command.

D:\oracle\product\10.1.0\Db_1\OPatch>set oracle_home=d:\oracle\product\10.1.0\db

D:\oracle\product\10.1.0\Db_1\OPatch>opatch lsinventory
