Powerpoint Problem

  Big Trev 21:58 22 Feb 2006

Whenever I receive an email with a powerpoint attachment and click on it to open it, Powerpoint fails to open. Powerpoint appears on the taskbar, but nothing else.

I have to open Task Manager to close it down.

If I open Powerpoint and open the file from the File menu it opens, but slide shows won't work.

I've mislaid the disc so I can't do a repair. Any other ideas?

XP Pro.

go to the microsoft site and download pps viewer free and save if anything else tries to open the presentation that way you can go to the saved location and choose open with

I'd already tried that one (perhaps I should have said!).

Anyway, it didn't work. Thanks anyway.

Any other ideas.
