OK, I have worked around it for now by changing the associations
for PDF files within Windows Explorer, but my real concerns are
as follows :
1) From "Start TL Installer (Advanced)", I see nothing on the
main "Install-TL" window that suggests that the system is
going to interfere with a pre-installed Adobe Acrobat :
there is no mention of PS_view, and under "Change file
assocations", "Only new" is pre-selected, yet somehow the
TL Installer ignored my previous association with Adobe
Acrobat 7 and replaced it with PS_view.
2) There is no obvious uninstall route for PS_view,
as reported in the previous message in this thread.
3) It was not possible to revert to the previous Adobe
Acrobat settings because they had been irrevocably
discarded. I would have to install Adobe Acrobat for
a second time in order to be sure that the settings were
as Adobe intended and as they had originally been.
I do not think that installing TeX Live should interfere
with pre-existing non-TeX installations. As an absolute
minimum, the TeX Live installer should issue a very clear
warning such as "The current association for PDF files is
Adobe Acrobat 7. TeX Live would like to replace this with
PS_view. Permit this ? [Y/N], with "N" pre-selected.
