You do not trust Microsoft? What OS do you use? You do not trust Google? What search engine do you use?

"Trust", in the way it is used in security, means that you have a certain expectation towards a certain resource and you are willing to believe it to perform a specific service with specific license provided by you. In a less abstract way, you use Google as a search engine and you trust it to provide you with reasonably matching results to the search terms you enter, and you also trust it not to deliberately present you with links that are supposed to hijack your browser, install malware onto your machine and/or trick you into doing so.

The trust the GP is talking about towards Adobe included their willingness to provide him with a PDF reader along with his ability to disable any tacked-on bloatware during the installation. The reason for his trust was prior experience and that it worked that way until now. The breach of his trust is constituted by Adobe not continuing this established procedure.
