Is WinAmp running it's background or taskbar service that would then restore program defaults back to WinAmp? Make sure to uncheck all video file associations in the WinAmp settings (I believe they have a quick 'Select All Video Extensions' shortcut or something of the sort).
Then just associate the extensions to VLC through Windows, or by rerunning the VLC install and selecting the files you want associated.
