Powerpoint keeps trying to repair file

By markobess ·
I have a user running Office 2010 that every time they open a given Power Point file it prompts them to repair the file: "PowerPoint found unreadable content in Presentation.pptx.

PowerPoint can attempt to repair the presentation."

Any help I can get on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
