For XP, either the "Right click-Open with" method or
Control Panel>Folder Options>File Types tab. Select the File type in the list (in this case PPS) and click the Change button.

Be sure to click "Open With", even if PPViewer or Powerpoint is on the menu. You need to open the Choose Program dialogue box so you can browse to the program exe to reset it. Also be sure to check "Always use this program...." and OK.
If they still won't open in OE, go to Ramesh's Site and either download the PPSFix utility or do the Manual steps that are listed. If you do the manual fix, be sure to do it exactly.

Thank you for your last advice. It works perfectly well for XP and Vista. I am able to open my pps files from OE without any problem.
Thank you again.
