You can make the file read-only (right-click the file, choose properties, check the read-only box in the Attributes section, click OK). NOTE: File attributes can be changed by anyone that currently has the ability to edit the file. You may also want to change the NTFS permissions to only allow read access to everyone except yourself (assuming the file is stored on an NTFS drive: WinNT,2K, or WinXP).

Hope this helps.

You'll need PowerPoint 2002+
"...previous versions of PowerPoint did not include this feature, password-protected presentations will not open in PowerPoint versions 95 through 2000, even if the user knows the password. So if you want to share a presentation with someone using an older version of the program, you'll have to remove password protection first."
