    For some reason whenever I click on a link in my Favorites in IE8 it instead opens powerpoint 2007 in XP... What might be causing this and how can i resolve it? Its driving me nuts!

    Has anyone ever experienced this before?

    Also, I'm not sure if this helps but it opens a Blank Powerpoint presentation... This is totally frustrating... Please let me know if I need to provide any extra info!

    Try this fix: LNK

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.


    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
