Powerpoint keeps trying to repair file

May 18, 2015 at 11:55:21
Specs: Windows 7
I have a user running Office 2010 that every time they open a given Power Point file it prompts them to repair the file:

'PowerPoint found unreadable content in Presentation.pptx. PowerPoint can attempt to repair the presentation.

If you trust the source of this presentation, click Repair."

If you click repair, it does not appear to make any changes to the file and it opens but it says:

"PowerPoint removed unreadable content in Presentation [Repaired]. You should review this presentation to determine whether any content was unexpectedly changed or removed."

If you choose 'cancel' as opposed to 'repair' it simply does not open the file.

I can open this same file on other machines running Powerpoint 2010 without an issue. I have tried running a repair of Office as well as all available office updates to resolve. Any help I can get on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

If you copy the file onto the desktop, open it, run the repair (presumably it will ask you to do so) then save the file with a new name, does it then open the newly saved file normally? I'm not sure where this might take us but I'm curious to see what happens.

EDIT:
Someone else solved it like this:
"Right-click on the PPTx file name and select PROPERTIES. On this dialogue box, you will see a button marked UNBLOCK, click on this and then press OK".

That could be the issue - part of security checking if it came from another computer.


Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If your PowerPoint presentation file is corrupted and you want to repair it in easy way then I would like to suggest a 3rd-party tool, Kernel for PowerPoint Recovery tool gives you desired and cost effective solution. It is an advance and easy to use. This software repairs presentation files having .ppt, .pptx, .pps, .ppsx, and .pot file formats. It recovers data items of the corrupt ppt files in its exact format before recovery.

The poster hasn't been around since May.

I wonder if responses 2 and/or 3, which have suddenly arrived might be spam. The poster at #3 has already come in late on another post suggesting software.
