I don't have a large PPTX file and yet it takes an inordinate amount of time to navigate from one page to another or even to CLICK from one object to another.
Other presentations are okay.  Just this one... BTW, I did NOT create this file, someone gave it to  me.

You might try adjusting hardware acceleration. It's counterintuitive, but sometimes knocking  it back helps.

It seems to be slow only on this one presentation.  Not on others.  could one graphic be causing this?

Yes, it could. Is there a particular point in this presentation where it's slow?

Maybe try running it through NXPowerLite and see if that helps. http://www.neuxpower.com/?ld=n

I believe they offer a trial version.
