That's weird - I've never seen Wing *take* a file-association with 
Python files before. Perhaps you set it up yourself sometime?

The way to change a file association is either to reinstall Python 
(which does this for you) or shift-right click on a '.py' file in 
explorer and choose "open with -> choose default".
