That's rather unusual.  As your first option, try to download the latest stand-alone QuickTime installer from this web page.  Select the link that says Download@Author's Site and you will receive the installer directly from Apple's web domain:

As a good alternative, you will find that the open-source VLC media player is probably the consensus choice as the most versatile third-party video player on the Windows platform.  It's free and it plays a wide variety of media, including MOV files:

If the above media players can't play your files, then your files could have been damaged. Try recollecting the files.
