    Right click > Open With... > Choose Program > Tick Always Use The Selected Program with this type of file.

    If the program you want is not there, browse to where you installed the program and select the .exe file.

    go to control panel > folder options > click on the file types tab. delete the BIN extension in the list to deassociate it with avg

    to associate mdf/mds with avg search for it in the list [if not there add a new extension] choose the advanced options of the mds/mdf extension, there u can add new actions or edit action, eg. Open

    edit. you may need to restart for some changes to take effect

    That should work.
