What I experienced:

No association for .ps, but Adobe Reader with administrator rights, and
.pdf was associated with AcroExch.Document in 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\.pdf, no associations for .ps and 
.pdf for the user existing in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes

I installed TL as user, and afterwards both 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\{.pdf,.ps} were associated with 
TL.PSVIEW. May it be that when installing as user it just checks for 
existing registry keys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER, not the association key in 
HKLM (or checking HKEY_CURRENT_ROOT, what are the merged keys for the 
machine and the current user)? I just did a reinstall by running 
install-tl.bat (standard options chosen: letter instead of a4 unchecked, 
create menu entries and desktop icons checked), same result.
