Hi,

Today I tried openning a powerpoint file and when i click to open it powerpoint opens then freezes. So i try again and it asks me whether i should start it in safe mode so i click yes and it freezes again. After this it then said last attempt in safe mode failed would i like to repair powerpoint, so i clicked yes and it started up the installer and repaired it. Still I cannot open any powerpoint files at all.

Any ideas pleas?

Thanks

Try opening PowerPoint first and then opening the file (File>Open) - does that work? If not I`d suggest re-installing Powerpoint.
