It could be that a temp file is corrupt. Perhaps PowerPoint is trying to open/save the temp file while processing the save of the real file and having a problem. Read this site which discusses PowerPoint temp files and perhaps delete any temp files that you find. I know that the site is not directly related to your problem...I'm merely pointing out the existence of temp files as a possible problem.

You might also look into your blank.pot file. I believe that is the default template for new presentations. Perhaps if that is corrupt, it might prevent the application from saving.

Just guessing...I mean...suggesting some possible items to look into.

Good luck!

✔ Best Answer
Can you also try doing this but saving to a different location (do you have an external HD or USB thumb drive)?

The next thing I'm going to suggest is that one of the graphics or fonts you've used in your presentation is corrupt and is preventing the file from being saved.

Try this first and see if it helps:

1) Go under the Format Menu
2) Choose Replace Fonts
3) No matter which fonts you've used, replace them all with a standard one (Times New Roman) is probably the safest.
4) Try now "Save As" under a new name
