Remove Oracle Db and Client11g

How can I completely remove Oracle 11g (Client and Database) from my windows pc. It was a single installation for training purposes. I have tried using the Universal Installer, but it did not remove the files. I can see all the Oracle icons on my start up page.

Go to the Oracle Downloads page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html

Scroll down a little to Oracle 11g.

You'll see a line for Windows 32 bit and WIndows 64 bit.  Which ever one you have look at the end of that like and click "See All" (for 32 bit or 64 bit).

At the bottom of that new page you'll see the Oracle De-Install utilities.

I believe the 11.2.0.4 one is the one you should download and unzip and run, regardless of what version of 11g you have.

The Deinstall utility is pretty simple, you unzip it and run it and it expects one parameter at least - the Oracle home location (refer to the readme).

Run once for each install you have (I'm guessing two, one for client, one for DB).
