Try before buy strategy

I'm trying to find a suitable PDF to Word converter and this involves many "free" downloads that aren't free - they are try before buy. I've tried several but none work as I want or the trial restrictions prevent proper assessment. As I find a download is no good, I use control panel/add delete programs to delete.

I wondered what you experts do.
Are there precautions I should take before downloading?
Is control panel the best (only?) way to delete?
How do I ensure such things as registry entries and are deleted?

Revo Uninstaller is a good way to ensure all uninstalls are complete and comprehensive.

WOT is a good way of assessing downloads.

Puts warnings up (red, green) on Google searches. And warns if you do click on a dodgy site.
