Repair Corrupt PowerPoint File

by dazyparker123 In reply to I'm trying to save my pow ...

I am giving you the solution for MS Office 2010 and above version.
Generally this error occurs when a user tried to download the presentation file from the unsecured websites. We can see the Protected view option with the PowerPoint file. It protects the documents, that are downloaded from unsecured websites.
To fix this issue, you can try these two methods. First is Instant Fix and second is Permanent Fix.
Instant Fix:
Open PowerPoint -> Click on Office button -> Click on PowerPoint Options -> click on Trust center -> click on Trust center settings -> locate Protected view -> disable the option for "Enable Protected View for files originating from the Internet" -> Click OK.
Note: When you disable this option then, any virus or unknown sites can easily enter in the system.
Permanent fix:
Go to Start -> type dcomcnfg in Search Box -> Click on it to open -> Component Services -> Click on Computer -> right click on My computer and select properties -> open Default Properties -> then set values for Default Authentication Level as Connect and Default Impersonation Level as Identify -> Click OK.

Can you also try doing this but saving to a different location

by EdwinHorn1 In reply to I'm trying to save my pow ...

(do you have an external HD or USB thumb drive)?

The next thing I'm going to suggest is that one of the graphics or fonts you've used in your presentation is corrupt and is preventing the file from being saved.

Try this first and see if it helps:
1) Go under the Format Menu
2) Choose Replace Fonts
3) No matter which fonts you've used, replace them all with a standard one (Times New Roman) is probably the safest.
4) Try now "Save As" under a new name

You may see how many solution about here:-

If all these advices can’t help you, look at PowerPoint Repair Toolbox

It’s demo version is available
