    PowerPoint 2000 and IE 5.5 (PPT 2000 and IE 5.5)

    I have a client that when she clicks on a hyperlink on an internal website that is to run a PPT or PPS file, it opens PowerPoint in normal view instead of running the presentation in Internet Explorer. This also happens if she clicks on a URL in an Outlook 2000 message. Any ideas how to turn this off so that the hyperlink runs the presentation?

    An URL in Outlook runs in PPT? I'm sure I've got that wrong - care to correct me?

    An URL going to a PowerPoint presentation (.PPT) or show (.PPS) is suppose to run in Internet Explorer. However on one client's computer it starts PowerPoint and you have to start the show manually even for the .PPS file.

    Have you checked the file associations in Windows Explorer?

    Everything is pointing to with PPT, PPS, and PPTHTML are pointing to PowerPoint just like mine. We had just tried rebooting her machine again this morning and now everything is working properly. It appears that some "gremlin" must be running around in her machine. Thanks for all of your ideas.
