I don't do oracle on windows so my knowledge is fairly limited. I think you need to do something special to get rid of the Oracle "services" that windows uses ( should be pretty well documented in the Oracle documentation ) and/or registry entries.

Some special command to get rid of the windows oracle services do some googling around if necessary. ( Oradim maybe ? ).

A unix install can be cleaned up just by deleting files and directories ( everything is a file in unix right ) but windows has complications.

# I don't think 8.0 can build databases with sqlplus.  I'm pretty sure that "sqlplus /nolog" and "connect / as sysdba" started in 9i.
