Hmm. I don't think there is more than two options - fight or don't fight. My experience is Vilja always attacks enemies as soon as they are encountered.

You have four options, stay back and use ranged weapons/use melee weapons and get in close, or avoid fighting/attack enemies that attack us. If you tell her to stay back she will tell you to be sure and give her arrows... If you tell her to avoid fighting she will not fight until you are attacked. Or if they attack her of course. Attack enemies that attack us will trigger as soon as the enemies see you. This is her default behavior.
You can use combinations, therefore if you only select use ranged weapons, she will automatically start shooting arrows as soon as the enemy sees you, unless you tell her to avoid fighting. Likewise in default she will charge them with a sword.
Her A.I. of course will always take over to defend you if you are attacked. So if you are hit by a ranged weapon, she is going to run in to defend you. I usually travel with two companions, so as soon as I am attacked I usually just back off and let them take care of it, and pick off stragglers with my bow. Vilja will usually keep a look out if you are sneaking and tell you about an enemy you may not be aware of without attacking them.. Uh oh, there's a Bandit, for example. This usually means that an enemy has partially detected you. She is letting you know that if you don't take them out, she will...
