Click start, control panel, add / remove, click change for Office, click add or remove / modify, click next

Click the little arrow next to powerpoint, click run all from my computer, click update

If you have the room on the drive you can do this with the other Office components

Leave the installation files on the drive, check with Microsoft Update after this

Hi Friends,
As always when looking for solutions to software problems and errors that occur on your PC. Firstly, do you have the time and the know-how to find the source of the problems and errors manually. Second option is to get hold of software that is designed to specifically fix PowerPoint problems only.

Thanks,
James
