Remove an Oracle database on my PC

Hi all,

I am working in a Windows 2000 environment et I have installed two oracle 8.1.7 databases : BASE1 and BASE2.
I have the following services in my system services :
- OracleOraHome81TNSListener
- OracleServiceBASE1
- OracleServiceBASE2

In my \oracle\admin\base1 and \oracle\admin\base2 directories, I have the following subdirectories :
adhoc, bdump, cdump, create, exp, pfile and udump.

I have the directory \oracle\ora81 and I have \oracle\oradata\BASE1 and \oracle\oradata\BASE2 subdirectories.

I want to remove BASE1 database. How to proceed?
I also want to remove OracleServiceBASE1 service. How to proceed?

Thanks in advance for your help.
