Free power point viewer problem

    Running XP, SP3 - downloaded Free Power Point Viewer for 2007. After many
    trials and errors I can finally get the program to open automatically when I
    click on a .pps attachment in an email, but then I get multiple error
    messages telling me the program cannot find a file. Each time I click "OK"
    on one, another one pops up. The files that it is looking for are, in this
    order: "Document", "and", "Local", "Temporary", "Internet" and "(name of
    file)".
    It seems that the program is unable to find my Temporary Internet file
    folder and when I tried to find it using windows Explorer, I could not find
    it either. Is this a PPV problem or an internet explorer problem, or what?

    Save the PowerPoint file attachment to your hard disk, then open it.
    Temporary files can sometimes be troublesome to find.

    Are you using Outlook Express for mail? (You left that part out).

    Unable to open .PPS attachments directly from Outlook Express using XP/SP2
    or XP/SP3:
