download the patch from metalink, search for patch 6810189

open the readme
search for section 7, confirm you have completed all Preinstallation tasks that apply to your setup
go to section 8, complete the steps in section 8.1
based on your 7.5 results you may have to complete section 9.1
next go to section 9.3.1 complete those steps for each database

1. Shutdown gracefully the DB.
2. Stop all Oracle services
3. Download the Upgrade kit and unzip it
4. Invoke Oracle Universal installer and point to the correct Oracle Home
5. Do upgrade of the server
6. Startup the DB
7. ensure that the SYSTEM tablespace has at least 50 MB free space and
shared_pool_size and java_pool_size are at least 150 MB
8.shutdown immediate
9. startup upgrade pfile=c:\init.ora
  here init.ora is a parameter file created to fulfill point 7.
10. Run the script ORACLE_HOME\rdbms\admin\catupgrd.sql
11. Shutdown
12. Startup
13. Run ORACLE_HOME\rdbms\admin\utlrp.sql
