You don't have to fix this, SC4 will read those fine. VLC just registered the DAT extension as default, but as long as you don't double-click the DATs, nothing will happen.

If you want to install the BAT/Lot/whatever, simply extract the ZIP file and place the DAT, SC4Lot, SC4Desc and SC4Model files into a new folder within \Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins. The ReadMe file should give you further instructions in case you need a special folder structure etc. If you find an EXE installer within the ZIP file, simply double-click it and let it do the work for you.
