Hyperlinks in PowerPoint Files

I prepare & proofread training materials in Word & Publisher for trainees‘ manuals and in PowerPoint for our trainers' classroom presentations. Problem: PowerPoint insists on showing all hypertext links in the .ppt documents as some color other than the standard bright blue which is used in the Word & Publisher versions. How does PowerPoint determine what color to use for URL links, and how can I change it?

I can - and do - remove the hyperlink on some of them, and simply render them as blue, underlined text. However, our trainers need to click on some of these links in the course of their presentations, and actually take the projection to and back from the indicated sites, so those links have to work. But when I use the right-click hyperlink-creation dialog box protocol to make them live, the program insists on rendering them in yellow type; if I remove the hyperlink again, it goes back to blue!

Have written the topic every way I can think of on MS Help bulletin boards, and can't find anything on point. By the way, I'm working with an Office 2007-installed PC, but on .ppt files saved in 2003 [Compatibility Mode]. OS is MS XP Pro, Version 2002, SP3.

Any help would be appreciated.
