    What type of file is this attachment, as the required program may need to be installed?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    OK, so you should be able to view slideshows. See if the article that I linked to helps.

    If the email attachment is a power point, it should have an extension of .pps. Right click the "paperclip" icon and choose "save as".
    Save the file to a convenient place such as Desktop or My Documents.
    Go to that location and right click the saved file. Use "open with" as a choice and look for Power Point to open the file.

    You can also download a free MS Power Point Viewer HERE

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
