Windows 7: Office 2010 says I have both an activated version AND a trial product

Office 2010 says I have both an activated version AND a trial product

I downloaded and ran the trial version of Office 2010 Professional Academic version. After a few days I decided to activate it and entered the 25-character product key which accompanied a purchased CD version of the program. When I go into any of the programs (Excel, Word, etc) and check to see if Office 2010 is authenticated (File > Help) I see displayed "Trial Product" and it says my trial period will expire in 26 days. Below that it reads "Product Activated." In other words, according to the almighty wisdom and omniscience of Microsoft I have BOTH an unactivated trial version and an authenticated version of their product. I would have thought that once I activated the product it would no longer say I have a trial version. Should the "Trial Product" bit still show there? If not how do I get rid of it? Thanks in advance for any comments, advice, etc.

Uninstall both 2010 versions > then re-install your paid version.

You could use the Programs and Features application. Do you see both versions there ?
If yes, uninstall both.

Here is a special application designed specifically for uninstalling MS Office of different years.
Scroll down to Office 2010 Suites, and click the FixIt button to uninstall.
How do I uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if I cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?
