How do I creat an association for Powerpoint?

I recently installed Service Pack 2 for XP. It was required that I do this in order to install Print Artist. Now that I have installed this Service Pack, I can no longer view my Power Point slideshow files. I have had them for several years and have always been able to see them fine. I use Powerpoint viewer 2003. Now I get a message that says that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel."
I can get to this folder okay, but don't know what to do next. Please help me. Thank you so much.

The easiest way is to right-click the file, choose 'Open With' and 'Choose Program' from the menu. Now either highlight the program in the list or use the Browse button to find it. Before clicking on OK put a tick in the box labelled 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'.
