    Default Powerpoint 2010 error message

    Hi all,

    I am trying to open other peoples PowerPoint files, I receive Powerpoint error:

    " PowerPoint found an error that it can't correct. You should save presentations, quit, and then restart Powerpoint."

    But I can access all of my own Powerpoint files. I am using PowerPoint 2010.

    Do I have to remove the Office 2010 and reinstall it? Thanks.

    Reinstalling may solve the problem.

    Are the other Power Point files created in Office 2010? Perhaps there is a compatibility problem, or option.

    Try this way to check if that helps.

    File . >> Options . >> Trust Cnte r>>> Trust Center Settings >> Protected View and (temporarily) untick all.

    Let me know if that works.

    Do not repair the installation of Office. Uninstall it completely, then reinstall it.
