Default Powerpoint 2007 won't open in Vista

Powerpoint 2007 won't open in Vista

I have been using Office '07 on XP fine for years, but we have a (fairly new, @ 4 months old) laptop with Vista Home Premium SP2 and Powerpoint won't open when double-clicking an existing PP file. PP opens, as in the process is running in Task Manager, but the application itself does not show/open.

PP will open via Start > Programs, so I initially ruled it down to the PP's that I was trying to open from other locations (i.e., the PP folder we have on the laptop) not being in the "Trusted Locations" in the Trust Center. So, I added the folder and its subfolders which works until you reboot. I've tried adding even the subfolders separately but none work after a reboot.

What am I missing, please? Thanks in advance!

~Tina

Yeah I was thinking maybe it was appearing off screen. Have you tried repairing the install?

Nope...interestingly enough, Office is not listed there! PP Viewer 07 and 97 are (needed for Media Shout presentation software), but no Office in sight! Hmmm...I don't understand...the program is activated and legit and runs otherwise...weird! I think maybe I'll try reinstalling it.
