It is so dependent on the situation and chip stacks. I might just call and look to reraise the turn again to see if he is really interested. You really can't worry about sets much. Sometimes you are just going to lose.

you have to take into consideration how much you raised preflop, and if someone would call with the card that the board is paired with,

Depending on how big the pot is and how big the raise is i would either call or fold.  Generally if the pair is higher than the third card it is more likely that they have trips.  If the third card is higher than the pair than players will often raise with their two pair.

I really hate pocket Aces.  They give me a false sense of security.  I tend to raise preflop with them and hope that others fold.  I nearly always lose to 3 kind/2 pair when I have them.
