Rather than using the Revo Uninstaller, why not go to:

http://www.freedomscientific.com and download the JAWS version 7
install package.

Then run it and select the uninstall option.

before you
go down this road.

When you say that JAWS 7.0 will not uninstall, it may help to
Are the files and directories associated with that version still
there after
you run the uninstall routine, what about desktop icons?  Do you
get any
messages before or after the reboot?  

If your objective is to reclaim disc space, you could try doing a
uninstall by manually removing 7.0 components, but again, do this
with care
because some JAWS resources are shared across versions.

I know that with performing a multiple JAWS installation, you
generally have
to install lower version numbers before higher version numbers.
I'm not
