I am: PC, Windows xp, IE8 and trying to open a powerpoint presentation from my distance learning class on Angel. I have tried opening with Firefox to no avail. I have done the browser tune up, enabled Java, updated Java, disabled pop ups on the browser and Spyware doctor. I have restarted after changes also.

I have tried to save the link and save the target to my computer rather than open it at the site, no difference. It goes to the Java console error message or blank screen. In properties it says it is a asp.document. Sometimes it gets to the Java circle icon then stops. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you.

If you don't have Powerpoint on your machine, you will need to install a viewer: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
