Spore Creature Creator Trial Version Won't Uninstall
I've tried numerous things so far. It's just my luck this thing would happen
too. I just bought the full version of Spore and it wont install until the
trial version is uninstalled. I've tried manually deleting all files
pertaining to the trial, using Add/Remove Programs, uninstalling it in Safe
Mode, restarting and trying again, etc. I thought about getting a microsoft
techie to get into my computer via remote assistance and using their bypasses
to wipe it from my comp, but getting any kind of assistance from them costs
$59. I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium, and if theres any other
information needed for assisting me I'll be more than happy to oblige.
Please, please help me.

Have you contacted EA to see if they have manual removal instructions?

I doubt Microsoft support would do anything about it, they don't have a
magic button they can press to remove things. If you are technically
proficient with the registry you could look for any keys related to Spore
and delete them.
