Trying to save and play vid file in Temporary Internet Files

I'm trying to copy a video file from Temporary Internet Files, but I can't play it.

It's saved there as:

lazytown_bing_bang_hi.asf#0;1.000;0;0;3:2;4:2

It's about 4.8 MB in size.

But when I copy it to Desktop it's name changes to:

lazytown_bing_bang_hi[1].dat

I've tried changing its extension to .asf, but I get this message from Windows Media Player:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

I've tried playing the file with realPlayer, but the Windows Media Player message appears.

The file won't play in WinDVD either, but I don't get the Windows Media Player message.

As a .dat file, it's too big for notepad, so I open it with wordpad, but it's just the code for the file.

Is there a way to save a playable copy of this file?

Thank You

Check Select the program from a list and click OK
Choose Windows Media Player and click OK

See if this could work

I get the same "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file" message when I try to open the file as a .dat file.
