Evince is part of the standard installation and is for viewing pdf files. You definitely do not want to uninstall this programme.

If you want to open a document with a particular programme, right click on the file, go to "Properties" at the bottom of the pop-up screen and from the next screen click on "Open with". If you want Open Office to open that file, click on Open Office.
If Open Office is not listed, you can click on "Add" and select it from the list of applications.
