What later version have you got to hand? As mmcconaghy implied later versions are backward compatible so you should be OK.

Please do not post in all-caps. All-caps is the Internet equivalent of yelling and no one likes to be yelled at.

Only thing that comes to mind, is did you Save before you printed?
Powerpoint allows you to undo a crop until you do a Save.
Without doing a Save you may be getting parts that you don't want.

One other thing is your Printer Drivers,
go to the manufactures website and
update to the latest release.
Have seen other problems that have been solved simply by updating the drivers.
Sorry, can't be of more assistance.

Do your "Print Screen > Paste > Crop" then save the result on the HD. Open the saved file and check that it is still the way you want it, then try printing it.

EDIT:
Or maybe that's what you are already doing.

Very odd. Presumably you did your crop in PowerPoint. Makes me think the program is corrupted but I've never experienced this symptom. I guess you could try cropping it in some other program (if you have one) then importing the result into PowerPoint.

To go along with Derek's idea, you could use XnView which is free software
and I know it has a Crop feature, which I've used many times.

http://www.xnview.com/en/xnview/

Try using XnView and see if you have the same problem.

I'm not a tech guy, but the only other thing that comes to mind is your monitor,
which may be giving you a very minor skewed view.
Have no idea what would cause this.
Try updating your monitor drivers.

Thanks again Mike, just to add to the mystery the crop and print behaved the same in Word. I am looking for a trusted supplier of monitor drivers. Does anyone know a trusted supplier ?

Not many folk use monitor drivers as they are only for settings refinements which often work fine without them. Graphics drivers are all that is normally necessary but I have a job to see how any of this would help your symptoms if I have understood them correctly. My guess is that if you plugged another monitor in there would be no change and it is what the computer is outputting that is the issue.

Having said that I've no idea what is causing this. How exactly are you going about the cropping process - I'm still looking for clues?

EDIT:
Just went through the process using Crop tool in Word 2003 and of-course I didn't reproduce your issue. It's a mystery, seems it can only be a corruption in Office (or maybe even Windows) so I can't suggest any simple fix. No idea if re-installing Office would help but it's a big gun to try if it ends up just the same. I did find this Repair:

You can try a Repair,

On the Powerpoint task bar, select the Help menu, click Detect and Repair.

or

Select Start, Control Panel
Under Programs, select Uninstall
Scroll down to the Office 2000 entry
Select, but do not double click,
At the top of the window, you should see the options to:
Uninstall, Change, or Repair
Click on Repair

See if that helps.

Thanks Derek. Mike I tried your repair root (never knew that existed) , tried again and problem the same.
Am tempted to replace 2000 with a later version but dont know if that would effect my existing files made in 2000.

I went from 2000 to 2007, and I know that both Excel & Word have no problems opening earlier version files, so I would say that you should be OK with Powerpoint also.

Thanks again all. I'm back to this problem. Can anyone guide me to a trusted free Microsoft Office 2007 download. I'm giving up on trying to correct whatever may be missing with my 2000.

I know of no Free Microsoft Office 2007,
but if you like, you can try OpenOffice:

http://www.openoffice.org/download/

I believe they have a Powerpoint like program in the package.

Yes, Open Office call their equivalent of PowerPoint "Impress".

You would have to uninstall MS Office 2000 first. Are you using MS Outlook email?
