    Running a Powerpoint 2003 slide show, there is one slide that has custom animation and builds the bullet points. It is easy to read the text in the text box on all of my computers except for a new Dell Studio running Microsoft Vista. The bullet points build as check marks but the text that should appear is not appearing. I am attaching the slide so that you can see the text that appears next to each check mark. I have checked the font color thinking that was the problem, but the color is the same on each computer that I am able to see the text on. Any ideas on what is preventing this from being seen on this Dell laptop?

    Are the versions of PowerPoint exactly the same?

    Turns out there was a Powerpoint Viewer 2007 that was conflicting with Powerpoint Office Edition 2003. Once I uninstalled the PPT viewer 2007 I could read the text.
