If you already removed it before but when you need to install it again it turns out that the Oracle Database 11g is still installed. Maybe when you removed it before it only removed a portion of it and the other part is still installed and running on your computer and you are no longer aware of it because you know you already uninstalled it.

Another possible reason why it happened is if you didn’t use the Deinstallation Tool that came with Oracle Database 11g. Oracle recommends that beginning in Oracle Database 11g Release 2 [11.2] [R2], users should use the deinstallation tool to uninstall the entire Oracle home associated with the Oracle Database, Oracle RAC, Oracle Clusterware, Oracle ASM, or Oracle Database client installation.
