There are a rather large number of possibilities.
Go to  http://filext.com/file-extension/db
 
to see the possibilities.  Without something else to go on, as to a possible type, your guess is as good as mine.

No idea how this site will help me? I have already been in this complex website a couple of days ago. I`m not looking for an erro, I just simply want someone to write me:
With which Programm I will be able to open this file, without any google-generated links.

Thanks

Shareece,
The site tells you what applications are associated with a file Extension. The site has nothing to do with errors, it give you a table of possible applications that are associated with the file extesion .db.  As you can see from the site, with the fiel extesion .db, that are many possible applications associated with that fiel extension
 
We cannot tell you what progam you use to open a fiel with the .db extension, as there are many possible choices.
 
It could be:
ANSYS Database
ArcView Object Database File
data by Synopsys Design Compiler, dbVista, Paradox, Smartware, XTreeGold
dBASE IV or dBFast Configuration
DIGIBooster Module/Song
Mozilla (Netscape) Client Certificate or Security Module Database
MSWorks
MultiEdit Configuration
Novell GroupWise Addressbook Database
Oracle Database
Palm Zire Photo Database
Paradox Ver 7 Table Database
Progress Database File
SmartWare Office Pac File
Solid Database
SQL Anywhere Database
WindowsXP Thumbnail Database
 If you go to the site for which I posted the link, above, and then scroll almost to the bottom of the page, you will find a table which holds the names of the Programs assocaited with each of the possible choices for an association with the file extension .db.  As you will see from that table, there are some 15 possible program asociations.  Without anything else to go on, your guess as to which of these is the right choice is as good as mine.

Sorry I could not explicitly answer your question.  It is a bit more complicated that you seemed to expect.
