I take it that you want to prevent pdfs opening with Acrobat and use reader instead when both products are installed?

Use Adobe's Customisation Wizard rather than Install Tailor. One of the options in Adobe's tool is to choose if the default pdf viewer should be Acrobat or reader. It's in the section "Choosing a default PDF viewer".

You can also use the Adobe Reader Customization Tool. There's an option inside of the utility that allows you to specify which program you want the default reader to be when your latest product is installed.
