Default Windows does not recognize this file type.

Whenever i download a video i get this message right here : Windows does not recognize this file type. Can anyone tell me how do i NOT get this message? I do not know why i get this message. Do i need to download some system or anything? I am pretty sure i do not have a virus or trojan.... so .... can anybody tell me what i need to do to watch the videos and stop making that error show up again?

What is the file extension?

If it is .mov you'll need Apple Quicktime player.
