unable to open attachments which I have downloaded

  dune3 16:15 07 Mar 2005

I'm having great difficulty opening my attachments; after downloading, when I try to open an attachment, a small window opens and reads 'Windows cannot find Program exe This program is needed for opening files of type PPS file'. The only step I've taken to try to cure the problem is to download Internet Explorer 6 (from Microsoft freeware) which is my current browser, but this hasn't helped to solve my problem. I check my emails daily and this problem started 2 days ago. I use Windows 98. I contacted MSN.com and Yahoo.co.uk by email about this problem but they have been no help whatsoever, and advise me to go onto Online Support. Can you please help?

PPS - powerpoint file.

Do you have powerpoint? If not, try the free viewer from MS.

Thank you very much Diodorus Siculus, I have downloaded and installed Powerpoint 97 into my C/Program Files folder, are there any adjustments further to be made to my PC or should I go directly to my email account and see if I can open some attachments? I am a complete computer novice and am still in the learning process. What next?
