I read about this in another group (which I can't seem to find now but here's someone's blog entry about it). Seems that Google and Adobe have combined marketing forces recently, and Adobe is pushing Google's toolbar while Google's Pack is now including Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you download Acrobat Reader from Google's Pack site, they specifically say that you can download pieces separately (it says "Choose only the software you want:"), so I'm fairly certain you don't have to get any of the other tools. If you download from Adobe's site, I'd be willing to bet you can opt out of the Google portion if you look hard enough. Google Pack does, however have its own downloader/updater that tries to keep all the pieces you've installed updated. I think you may be able to uninstall it and keep the individual pieces, though I haven't tried that.
