    Have friend who has Vista and when I send her a power point file she can not
    see it. Puts it on her desktop and still can't see it. Does anyone have a
    URL where she can download it to her pc (free) and thus see power point
    files?

    She needs this:

    PowerPoint Viewer 2007:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...40-14E1-467D-8DCA-19D2A8FD7485&displaylang=en

    And then will likely need to do this:

    Is PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer installed?

    She needs to install the PowerPoint viewers, and others who have
    responded have posted the URL for that. That will allow her to view
    the file, but not to update it. If she needs to update it, she can
    spend buck$ for MS Powerpoint or download Open Office
    (www.openoffice.org) for free.
