How to uninstall oracle developer6i?


I installed Oracle Developer6i and I dont know how to unistall it. There is no uninstallation file part of the suite(developer6i).

i. Some friends back in the workplace say that you must manually delete the registry entries and that completes the task.
I am circumspect of the very thought of mishandling registry entries, which might have some repercussion in the other vital softwares running.

ii. When I try deleting the entire oracle developer6i folder i get the message that some files cant be deleted.

Can someone please tell me as to how to uninstall oracle developer6i?

IMHO, deleting the reg entries is the only option.

Deleting any Windows version of Oracle, including 9i requires registry hacks.  Do a google search on removing oracle and you will get plenty of information.

Oracle's own instructions work, but contain a bit of an old joke: Hawkeye and Trapper are disarming a bomb that fell unexploded into camp. Col. Blake reads instructions: "Cut the green wire".  Hawkeye takes his cutters.  Snip, the green wire is cut.  Blake continues, "After cutting the red wire".

Oracle's instrcutions say to delete a bunch of registry keys, then at the end say to get information from one of the keys you just deleted.
