The easiest way is to shut down the instance. If there are any left, it is likely they should be removed. But like hpuxrac suggested, look on metalink for docs explaining it, especially look for the ones about figuring out the key value, even if some are way old. Note:123322.1, Note:1020329.6 and Note:153961.1 are a good start.
