    Sounds like a file infected with malware to me. It probably isn't even the video/movie you were looking for. I'd delete it and try again, tbh.

    Your only chance is to go to the original source of the file and pay to access it.

    ^^ is likely right. Spreading badware through fake codecs is one of the most prevalent ways of infecting computers.

    Also, Techspot isn't going to help you circumvent DRM on a file you don't own. So I'm closing this thread.
