George,

You don't need the full Microsoft PowerPoint program in order to view .pps presentations. Microsoft has a free viewer that you can download from their website. The latest handles PowerPoint 97 to 2007 files. Here is the link:

Cheers! :beer:

George,

If you have Office 2007 it should have come with Ppt. Microsoft Office, I think, always has Ppt as part of the package. If you have Office then you can open your programs list and look under Microsoft Office and it should be there. If you don't have Microsoft Office then go with Brad's advice. I use the free viewer on this laptop but on our desktop we have Office 2007.

If you don't have MS Power point than just download OpenOffice.org and it will handle everything you need.
