Oracle 12C database provides a built-in utility file deinstall.bat ( sh ) that is used to uninstall Oracle Database 12 completely from the system. Below are some useful points before continuing the uninstallation

 
1. The deinstaller will take care of stopping all the services run by Oracle database. For example, listener, database service etc

2. The deinstaller will completely remove all the directories inside the ORACLE_HOME directory such as /admin, /oradata, /diag etc
 
3. Run the Deinstaller either as administrator or Oracle Software installation owner

4. The deinstaller identifies the ORACLE_HOME directory automatically if it runs from the ORACLE_HOME\deinstall
