A file that was created in Powerpoint, and save as a .ppt file is not recognized as being associated with the Powerpoint application. When the powerpoint was loaded, it would not run quickly, so I tried to delete some files that I thought might be slowing down the system. I may have deleted a temp file for the file I was trying to run. Is there anything I can do that will fix the file so that the application reads it as a Powerpoint file?

How to Create a File Association for an Unassociated File Type in Windows 2000
You may want to create a file association for a file type that is not known to Windows 2000 by default. There are two common reasons for this action:
A program (typically a database program) produces file reports with extensions that are not registered in Windows 2000.
You receive e-mail message attachments that were created in a program that is not installed on your computer. The file name extension is not registered, but you have a program that can open these files.

To create a file association for an unassociated file type:
In My Computer or Windows Explorer, right-click a file with the extension whose association that you want to create, and then click Open. Or, double-click the file.
In the Open With dialog box, choose a program to associate with this file name extension. Click the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file option.
