Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You probably have a previous installation of Oracle that has not been removed, or a partial installation that you have to manually remove.
backup your system,
Make sure that Oracle is uninstalled,
manually delete all directories created for Oracle,
edit the environment variables to remove Oracle entries,
edit the system registry to remove all Oracle entries.
Warning ! if you make a mistake, you will need the backup.
