Chapter 1. Getting Started with PowerPoint > Detecting and Repairing Problems

Detecting and Repairing Problems

At times you may determine that PowerPoint is not working as efficiently as it once did. This sometimes happens when you install new software or move files into new folders. Use the Detect And Repair command to improve performance by repairing problems such as missing files from setup and registry settings. Note that this feature does not repair personal files such as your presentations. If the Detect And Repair command does not fix the problem, you might have to reinstall PowerPoint. If PowerPoint doesn't respond and close, you can use Microsoft Office Application Recovery to exit the program. If you need to add or remove features, reinstall PowerPoint, or remove it entirely, you can use Office Setup's maintenance feature.

Detect and Repair Problems

Click the Help menu, and then click Detect And Repair.

Click Start.

If prompted, insert the PowerPoint or Office CD in your drive.

If necessary, click Repair Office, and then click the Reinstall Office or Repair Errors In Your Office Installation option.
