Go get Open Office (see google) as its free and usually runs fine. Later you can open it in PowerPoint after you have time to find out what the heck is with Office.
I'm trying to create a presentation for tomorrow. Every time I go into PowerPoint and add a slide design, the program freezes up. Also, if I try to go into Word and open a document there, that program freezes too. I've dumped tons of programs from my computer and I've even dumped Office and even installed Office 2007. The same problem comes up. HELP??!!
I 'm running XP, by the way. I have 512MB RAM but 137 available. I have 111 GB hard drive with 49.7 free.
