Unable to save PowerPoint File

BTW, using WIndows 8.1 EnterPrise, 64bit, with Office/PowerPoint 2013.  When I open a second PowerPoint file after having one already open, PowerPoint opens a second instance of the application, not just a new file for the first instance of the application.  When I go to save a PowerPoint file, I get a message saying “Sorry, PowerPoint has an error and you must save your work and restart PowerPoint.  And when I try to save the file, I get the same message again making it hard/impossible to save the file before closing it.  Because of that, any changes made since the last time I was able to save it are lost.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hmmm. So you get the error with a blank file of one slide based on your default template with no content on the slide? Do you have any application or COM add-ins loaded and running? If so, which ones?
