I have a problem with my Office PowerPoint as follows;
Whenever I open my PowerPoint presentations it takes them a long time to load all the slides as if the application is frozen. During this time if I click on my slides or try to scroll down, the message "(Not Responding)" will appear on my title bar. If I close the file at this point I should use "END NOW" to close my file. I have sent the error afterward to Microsoft and they have replied that this problem will be fixed by applying Office Updates but I have installed all available updates and there is no Update available for my product (neither for my OS). If I wait to pass that delay, after a while my PowerPoint will open the file but what I see in the actual page view is not what is in the slides. Drawings are being missed and the weird thing is that I can see those drawings in the slides panel in a smaller size, for example I can see the table and lines--which actually exit and have been drawn--in the slides panel but they don't show up in the actual page view. If I draw something in the page view I can see the result in the slides panel in a smaller scale but it disappears from the actual page view. I also thought it might be a memory issue; I changed my RAM and reduced it to just one stick of 512 MB which didn't help. Please let me know if you have any idea of what's going on because I'm out of idea. My Office product is 2003 with latest updates and service pack 2. My OS is Windows XP SP2 with latest updates. My Hardware is Intel P4 dual channel memory, I had 2 GB RAM in 2 channels, I changed them. Now I have two sticks of brand new Mushkin 512 MB in channel A.
