I have temporarily commented out the psview file associations
altogether. Users have a several alternatives anyway for viewing a
PostScript file with psview: opening the file from within psview, or
drag-and-drop, configuration from within a latex-aware editor (the
same is true for gsview).

Proper removal code would also have to check whether it is still the
original file association, and not a later override from gsview.
