Have you tried libreoffice to open it? Its a freeware app that mimics Office.

I keep Open Office on my rig specifically to fix MS Powerpoint issues. The ONLY REASON I have it. Hope it works.:)

yeeah, that is right. But it does not work as good as the power point viewer, as it does not go slide by slide but shows them all. Thank you.

no, it won't....that said, if you open it in LibreOffice (or open office) and save it as a MS powerpoint file (the .ppt or .pptx), and THEN open it with MS PowerPoint, you'll find that it is magically fixed. Can't tell you how many times that has saved me the day of a presentation.

let me know if that works. If not, we can do more digging. Want this marked unsolved?

nah, it's cake. Open with LibreOffice, save it as a .ppt (if you are using pre 2010 Office), or .pptx if not. Then just use MS PowerPoint to open it. Pretty sure it will work....

It is working fine now. At last I was able to reinstall Microsoft power point viewer. Thanks y'all for your time-consuming work. Can close it now. Anna Ruth
