Try right click on file, click on properties. It should tell you what the file opens with. There is a box marked Change. Try altering the file with that.

Save the attachment to your hard drive (i.e. detach it from the e-mail).

Locate the file in Windows Explorer, Shift+Right click and select Open With. Choose Powerpoint and tick "Always use this program..." or similar.
