our database is on a unix server. most of our clients are windows XP machines.

I don't see what an oracle client has to do with application server. Where is it? Is it a seperate server? The only connection to the DB will be done by the application server, so your client config should not be the issue here.

But on the client, after de-installing the 9 version, all entries should have been removed from the registry, which obviously didn't happen... I don't think removing them would hurt. The 10g registry entries are in the right place, it's normal they are placed there. Actually, you can remove all entries at the higher level, EXCEPT the inst_loc entry, which points to your inventory (if it's there).
