Ask the person who sent it to resend it again, as it may have an error, or you could try the Open With command and do an search online for programs to open it. Terry

Presumably you do have Powerpoint installed? Try right-clicking the link and Save to Desktop - then see if it will open from there.

Are you using Outlook Express or another e-mail client to open this.

Is the OS XP?

pps is a powerpoint show. With XP you can have problems viewing pps files.

Just a thought, Is the operating system on your computer the same as your friends.

If you are using (e.g.) XP and he/she are using Window 7 (or VisaVersa), that may be the problem.

Save the attachmentand then try downloading Picassa (google),This can read virtually any graphic file on your system.
