I'd originally had PP on my computer. I then downloaded Microsoft Office for Students. Didn't wind up using it at all, so after a few months I uninstalled it. At the same time, I lost access to PP. Thinking maybe I accidently deleted it when uninstalling MO, I went to the Windows site, and downloaded PP from there. I still don't have access to it. How do I fix this?

Don't quite follow.
You've downloaded PP and run an install program?
Does it appear in Add/Remove under Microsoft Office?
Is it in Start/ All Programs/ Microsoft Office?

You cannot download Powerpoint...but you can download viewers for Powerpoint, which is for users who don't have Powerpoint installed but who want to be able to see Powerpoint files.

So...the question is...just what did you download?

If Powerpoint came on your system...and you have recovery disks issued by the manufacturer of your system...chances are that the only way to reinstall such would be to restore/recover your system back to its original state when purchased.

One thing you can try...go to Add/Remove Programs and see if Powerpoint is listed there. Click the button to uninstall it and see if you are presented with a repair option. This is normal for MS Office installs made from purchased CDs, so don't know if it will happen that way for you.

I just figured out where the problem is. Firefox again. I've had nothing but trouble with it! I've had a corrupted account 3 times now, with FF. Guess it's happening again. Thanks, anyway!
