If you are using Office 2003, and if you installing Microsoft updates properly you might have faced couple of issues on Powerpoint. Commonly seen symptoms are Powerpoint crashes/hangs when opening certain PPT’s. Some presentation shows some error for the first time and lot more related.
Well if you are facing it then you are not the one alone, its common for many now but fortunately Microsoft has found out a fix for this issue which itself was caused by their system update.

“PowerPoint was unable to display some of the text, images, or objects as slides in the file (name) because they have become corrupt. Affected slides have been replaced by blank slides in the presentation and it is not possible to recover lost information. To ensure that the file can be opened in
previous versions of PowerPoint, use the Save As command and save the file with the same name or a new name.”
