If you are able to create PPT file when you are logged with your credential (user ID + Windows Password) you should be able to save every PPT presentation and open it.
If you cannot start a PPT presentation by a simple click, please check:

  1. File association in your Windows explorer (Tools/ Folders option, File Types tab) for powerpoint formats PPTx PPS etc
  2. Antivirus/firewall setting eventually blocking some action.
  3. Browser setting allowing run some format
If you don't have a valid powerpoint sw you can always download a free PPT viewer from Microsoft web site OR download Openoffice and use for all your PPT files

Considering you are on a work computer, you may find that all attachments are being blocked, as they are a security risk (many viruses are transmitted in this fashion).

Assuming you are using Outlook, it is quite easy to block the attachments at the mail server. I would check with my co-workers to see if their systems have the same issue, also.

Cheers
Nick

Unable to open all attachments


If you have Office be sure PPT is installed (some MSOffice do NOT include PPT ) if you have PPT installed launch your powerpoint.
go to File/ open
select any powerpoint file.
If you do not find any .PPT file simply create a PPT presentation save and try to open.
You can then associate .PPT file with Powerpoint program in your Windows Explorer: (go to Tools/Folders option File types tab)

Ok, first you definitly want to upgrade to service pack 3. And what version of Direct X are you running this sounds like you need to upgrade that as well.

goto: http://winupdate.microsoft.com

Let it install what ever moduals it needs to install and then click custom button, under optional software if there are ANY Direct x updates install them, also install service pack three it has a lot of fixes for multimedia applications and is the most stable version of xp out there.
