One of my best friends, Sachit is very fond of taking movies wherever he went. Recently, he bought a new digital camera for the same purpose. He was quite happy and took loads of clips that day only. Later that night, he phoned me and told that all the movies files that he recorded had "File Extension MOV"
and his computer kept displaying 'Windows cannot open this file' message when he tried to open it. He wanted to convert these files to play with Windows Media Player so that he can incorporate them into movies with the Windows Movie Maker. This kind of problem is a ‘common thing’ if you don’t know anything about an extension attached to a file that is important to you. Fortunately, I had a perfect solution to handle this kind of files. But first, let’s introduce ourselves to “File Extension MOV”
The "File Extension MOV" is the format that is used to store video and audio files. This type of files makes use of a proprietary compression algorithm created by Apple and is compatible on the Windows as well as Mac platform. These are now used commonly as multimedia file format to save movie files and other types of files.
The longer you have your computer, the slower it runs and the more it crashes? These types of problems can be caused by corrupted drivers also. Installing and uninstalling programs leave behind fragments — stray files, orphaned startup tasks, corrupted drivers. Over time the registry starts to get bogged down and conflicts emerge. Many of the File extension errors are often caused by incorrect associations of files. This type of errors eventually slows down your computers too.

And the solution:
Not being able to open mov files in Windows also may be a result of registry errors or not having the appropriate application installed. One of the solutions, is to open the program in QuickTime, which opens this kind of files. Other option to eventually fix this problem and speed your pc is 'Driver Detective'
