:wave: hi all  

 

interested in your recommendations for faster downloads (besides using a faster connection),

will this help? --> http://www.speedbit.com/

 

youtube videos [when they will play at all] play 20 seconds or so then stall or break up, love the Craig Chiquico video but its taking 12 min to download for a 4 min video...? anyone else have this problem?

 

also unable to view powerpoint videos in Files Library above, cannot see the Whales Video!  :cry:

I don't know how one could speed up downloads without a faster internet connection. Faster downloads require faster connection. Data coming into your home is like water flowing through a pipe. The speed depends on the size of the pipe.

 

As far as Power Point files, Microsoft provides a free Power Point Viewer at no charge.

I'll let her know, thanks. I used to have a program that I liked better that viewed PP files but I can't remember which one. Maybe that free Open Office  or something like that. I liked it because I could change the pictures or copy them if I wanted them.

This should work....

Or this....

 

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6

 

Both those are from Microsoft. Which, by the way, I did have a "enter product code" issue. I deleted all Microsoft Office products off my computer and reinstalled it and now have no problems at all.

 

A couple other good ones are....

 

Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/

 

.... and it's rebellious little sister....

 

Libre Office: http://www.libreoffice.org/

Interesting. I would check to see if there are other Microsoft Office products installed. There might be the actual Power Point that came preinstalled on the PC from the store at the time of purchase. This might be causing the product code poppycock. 

 

  poppycock... lol  :lol2:

this was the problem, did as you said & uninstalled all office... then downloaded PP Viewer, no product code needed. Beautiful!  :ecstatic:

when opening a download that plays with PP Viewer, it will not play but instead gives a weird little boxed display of techy mumbo jumbo.

Only way for me to play PP videos is:   start --> all programs --> PPViewer--> PP downloads --> open video

 

is there a better way?

thank you Bob for your follow up... yes, I uninstalled ALL office and ALL powerpoint that were previously installed... Then download your link. Videos in Files Library now will play :backflip:    its just a l-o-n-g way to get there

 

also, still getting 'important updates' for microsoft office...?  :S    I rebooted after uninstalling... your thoughts on why getting updates for products no longer there? 

 

Nod32 <-- ('Mother')  doesn't like it when you don't download the updates   :tsk:
