    I have the XP operating system, Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business and Microsoft Office Power Point Viewer 2003. I downloaded the XP SP2 and cannot open Power Point Slideshows. I get the message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." I am a big coward when making changes to my computer as something always goes awry. There has got to be a setting that is wrong. Folder Options in the control panel is Greek to me. Can someone help? Thanks!
