To be honest, Zdeněk, how TeXdoc opens PDFs is the least
of my concerns; of far greater concern is why the file
associations have been changed without my permission
such that double-clicking on a PDF in Windows Explorer
now launches PS_View.  Even worse, PS_View is neither
listed under Control Panel / Programs as a program
capable of being uninstalled, nor does it appear in
the list of things I can remove in TeX Live Manager.
How can I evict the d at mned thing from my system
and restore the previous file associations, short
of removing TeX Live 2011 itself ?
