That is not a VLC fault. You have somehow accidentally changed your default file type associations.

Try this tutorial;

Default File Type Associations - Restore

You say the problem goes away when you uninstall VLC?

Then what you need to do is uninstall VLC. Do the tutorial, and then re-install VLC. Taking care to check the correct file associations.

Have you done what I suggested? Uninstall VLC. Do the tutorial to restore default file associations, then re-install VLC.

I would also suggest you download the VLC package again, before you install it.

Mike is correct is giving this solution.

You will need to download the registry settings for both .EXE and .LNK to be sure that both types of desktop shortcut are taken care of.
