I take it you downloaded the professional. Did you change the time or anything? Not sure how they monitor their 30 day free trial. They do have a free version that you can use though http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
If the s/w is any good then uninstalling and reinstalling should not make a difference but perhaps worth a try.
I myself use ccleaner to uninstall my s/w

revo is supposed to do more than just uninstall. looks like a number of utilities in one. I have been using ccleaner for a long time now. it is handy to clean out temp files, clean registry as well as uninstalling software and manage startups.
but revo's job is a little different as it specialises in uninstalling so probably does more than ccleaner in that respect. But because I never had the need for revo's extra features, I was happy to stick with Ccleaner.

It is down to the individual but nothing wrong with having both installed.

I would uninstall then reinstall and see if that helps and make sure you get the freeware version.

OR you can try ZSoft Uninstaller. Down side you need to tell ZSoft Uninstaller to monitor an installation before you do the install otherwise the uninstaller doesn't know what has changed. otherwise works pretty good.
