hi all

i had Oracle 11g R2 on my system with home folder on say drive f:\app ... the DB i was using was ORCL. now i de-installed oracle, deleted f:\app folder (home folder for oracle) and trying to re-install and use same db name i.e ORCL but i get following error
         SID already exists...etc etc
my question is, how to finish all traces of previously installed oracle so that i can go with a fresh installation with the same SID

bundles of thanks in advance.
