I get the feeling you are infected, lets test my thoughts.

1: Download & run Unhide
To run Unhide, simply download it to your desktop and then double-click on the Unhide icon. The program will open a black box and start making the files on your fixed disks visible again. Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives. Once it has finished, the program will display a Windows alert stating that your files have been restored. You should then reboot your computer for all of the settings to go into effect.
Copy & Paste the contents of the log. Let me know if it doesn't produce a log please.

2: Reboot

3: Run RogueKiller

Official tutorial
If RougeKiller won't run, open IE & turn off SmartScreen Filter.
Download & SAVE to your Desktop.
Quit all programs that you may have started.
Shutdown your antivirus to avoid any conflicts.
Please disconnect any USB or external drives from the computer before you run this scan!
For Vista or Windows 7/8, right-click and select "Run as Administrator to start"
For Windows XP, double-click to start.
Wait until Prescan has finished ...
Then Click on "Scan" button
Wait until the Status box shows "Scan Finished"
click on "delete"
Wait until the Status box shows "Deleting Finished"
Click on "Report" and Copy & Paste the content of the Notepad into your next reply.
The log should be found in RKreport[1].txt on your Desktop
Exit/Close RogueKiller.
When completed make sure to re-enable your antivirus.

Let us know the file type of the downloaded video. If it wasn't a valid video file extension it could cause issues if you associate it with the wrong thing. Most likely it is your exe files that have changed association - MS have a fix for that (but it is still as well to check for infection afterwards as that is most often the cause):

Often websites offer "so called" videos but actually they are viruses (exe program files). It is best to set your system to "show all file extensions" so that you can check them and guard yourself from this in future.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
