    Are you saving the vidio file to your hard drive before you try to open it?

    Note the file type of the download. Is a zip or avi or mpg, etc?

    Based on the filetype for this specific download, which program is supposed to open it?

    Do a file search on your own computer and see if you have another file of the same type. If yes, then right click and open this file and see if plays prorerly.

    If you're running XP it should handle any zip file without any problems, so must be something else going on there.

    Right click and select "open with" from the menu then browse for wmp.

    Seems your file associations are mixed up or it may relate to malware.

    Some file association fixes at the link below.

    If it was a ZIP or other archive, did you try extracting it first? You can use a free program like 7-Zip or Izarc.
