MS update seem to have installed new version of Power Point 2010

User of Microsoft Office 2007 (home and student version, original)

After ca. 3-4 weeks not using my Power Point programs I suddenly discover, that all my files (only Power Points) both on the computer and on my USB´s cannot be opened unless I follow the pop up window with "invitation" to buy the new version or use same for a limited period.

The fault must be made during one/some of the automatic updates. I have tried to delete same, but cannot go any further back than 19.9.2013 and the problem is still the same.

Can anyone explain/suggest a solution??

regards Eivind

When you installed Office did you put the product key in and Activate it?

Possibly you are in Reduced Functionality mode, check out the info on click here


  • Click the Microsoft Office Button Button image, and then click PowerPoint Options.
  • Click Resources, and then click Activate.
  • If your software is activated, you receive the following confirmation message: 'This product has already been activated'

If your software is not activated, the Activation Wizard starts. Follow the instructions in the Activation Wizard.
