Right click on the file and select open with, then select the program that you wish to associate with them, it will have a tick box asking if you wish to make this permanent.

OK, see if you can disassociate it with anything, mine says unknown association.

Sorry, forget that, I think the route may be, Control panel, Folder options, File Types and see what it is associated with, you should be able to delete the association, I don't believe that the file needs to be associated with anything, it is not in my list.
