              You find the deinstall utility on the download site (near the bottom):

                    There are some 'file in use' issues on Windows, I recommend this workaround:

                    1) Stop all Oracle related services manually
                    2) Rename %ORACLE_HOME%\bin to %ORACLE_HOME%binxxx
                    3) Reboot the machine
                    4) Rename %ORACLE_HOME%\binxxx back to %ORACLE_HOME%\bin
                    5) Run deinstall utility
                    Specify the storage type used by the Database ASM|FS []: FS========================= I dont know what this means!
                    FS means FileSytem, ASM is Automatic Storage Management, in your case FS is correct.

                      Hi oradba,

                      I tried the workaround, but still the same issue.

                      thanx

                        Currently I don't have a Windows 7 environment (recently no problems on Windows XP). Did you check Helios' link?

                          Pl see if MOS Doc 1088324.1 (11gR2 Deinstall fails on Windows 7) can help.

                            Dears,

                            this time the deinstall tool results are different than yesterday. the only different step i made today is that i started a command prompt session using "Run as Administrator". below are the results:

                            1- the Oracle home folder was deleted.
                            2- start menu shortcuts were removed
                            2- some of the services were deleted but not all, the following services still exists:
                            - Oraclec_app_product_112~1.0_dbhome_2ConfigurationManager
                            - Oraclec_oracle_middle~1_utilsConfigurationManager
                            - OracleDBConsoleorcl

                            I forgot to tell that I have Jdeveloper and Weblogic installed. I guess the second service above is related to weblogic.

                            Now I am planning to re-install the database again and i have the following questions:

                            1- The Express edition will not work on windows 7 64 bit ... Correct?
                            2- If i reinstall the enterprise edition, which of the following requires less resources (RAM and CPU usage)?
                            a- Standard
                            b- Standard One
                            c- Personal
                            d- Enterprise

                            the whole perpose is that i want to develop middleware app that connects to OracleDB and deployed useing WebLogic.

                            Thank you all for your continous support.

                              11gR2 Deinstall fails on Windows 7 [ID 1088324.1] resolves the issue that deinstall fails to completely remove my Oracle 11g R2 installed on Windows 7 64 bit.
