I'm running Powerpoint 2000 on a Win 98 Pentium 4 machine with 256MB of Ram.
Since Monday, when I open a powerpoint file and try to view it as a
slideshow, it takes a full minute for the slideshow to begin! I get a black
screen and then it begins. I haven't installed anything new, and have all
other apps closed. I've rebooted a lot. The files are not big, 2 or 3 MB
each, and are on my hard drive. I created some, and received some from
others. They are not too graphic intensive. It's very embarrasing as people
I'm presenting to wait the the presentation to start! I have run Windows
Update and Office Update.
Thanks so much,
