I running Windows XP Pro and Outlook express for my e-mail. Until a few weeks ago I could get an e-mail with a power point (.pps) attached, click on the paper clip in the upper right hand corner of e-mail, then click click on the .pps file and it would open using power point view 2003. Now it tells me I do not have a program associated with this file, yet when I save the .pps to my desktop it opens just find from the desktop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the power point viewer 2003 and am still getting the same problem. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your solutions

Ax,

I went to the site that had the registry fix and that did the trick.

Thanks for your help
