R-click the file, click properties, you will see "opens with", then a button "Change", click on the change button, then select the program you want it associated with. If the program is not in the list, click the "Browse" button and navigate to the program you want.

Look in VLC and un-tick .asf in associations/file types and open WMP and tick .asf in File Types (under Options).
