I am using a powerpoint presentation in one of my classes. This is the first time I have had this problem and I am stumped. I have one particular presentation that every time I open the file, a popup window comes up that wants me to sign in to a web site for (what I think is) the University of Arizona. It says log in to arizona......edu. I have to click on the 'X' at least 6 times to finally close the box. It does not pop up again once closed. Of course I can't log in because I don't have a password. It only happens when I use my laptop. If I open the program on any other computer, it does not popup. I have tried making a new presentation and deleting each slide one by one to see if I can find where the popup is coming from. I have had no luck with that so far. I think I have it removed then all of a sudden it pops up next time I open the file. I have removed all of the pictures thinking they may have been tied to this site somehow. I have tried searching my computer for any files with those words in it. I have run spyware checks. No luck. Any ideas?

It sounds to me like the pop-up blocking (if you run one) program has not been told to block this specific site. Open your browser, go to Internet Options, Content and see if you can tweek your pop-up blockers.

I'm betting somewhere in your presentation is either an image/picture or a link to that website. Probably to former, If you copy and paste an image from the net into your presentation... powerpoint tries to keep the link/connection. I believe it's something called OLE.

PowerPoint connects to the internet unexpectedly
