    I recently re-installed my Windows XP Home operating system and IE 8.
    OE 6 is working but it won't open .pps attachments. It says there is no association for the file and directs you to the folder association file. I find that it is properly checked for the PowerPoint viewer.
    What's up with this?

    Make sure IE8 is set as your default browser.

    Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Programs.
