Have you installed new software just prior to "all of the sudden BOOM!"?

no new software was installed.
and the problem is that if i want to download a file, my computer registers is as a text file and not a video.
obviously, you can't watch a video if it's a text file, i just don't get why it changed all the sudden. but it's saying that the file i'm trying to download is a text file. it's so bloody confusing!!!
GRRRRR!!!

What browser are you using? Have you recently updated this browser to a new version?
