I am trying to practicing running an ORACLE 11g Database installation and then uninstalling it. I am running a 32 bit Windows XP Professional version operating system. My problem is that on my last uninstall, the control for the OracleDBConsoleORCL service is still left in the services controller. I have cleared all other ORACLE references. I cannot figure out how to remove it. Does someone have the information on how to remove this partial information of the left over OracleDBConsoleORCL service?

Software/Hardware used:
32 bit Windows XP Professional version operating system, ORACLE 11G v2

Try the following steps to remove oracle completely….

1. Uninstall all Oracle components using the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI).
2. Delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE key which contains registry entries for all Oracle products by using regedit.
3. Delete any references to Oracle services/components in the following registry location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/. Looks for key entries that starts with “Ora” which are obviously related to Oracle.
4. Reboot now
5. Delete the ORACLE_BASE directory. (i.e DriveLettter:\Oracle>)
6. Delete the DriveLetter:\Program Files\Oracle directory. (where u install most if that C:\)
7. Empty the temp directory.
8. Empty the recycle bin.

Now again reboot !

This can be used from the command line to remove the service:

<pre>sc delete OracleDBConsoleORCL </pre>
