All Microsoft Office programs have a self-healing feature that can
detect and repair problems. When you run office diagnostics in any
Office program, the Microsoft Office Diagnostics feature can often
repair problems, such as failure to launch, frequent crashes, and
features lost, that you may experience using the programs. When
using features related to sharing files, you may have other
programs in your Office suite that might have problems and are
required to use a feature in PowerPoint. When you experience
problems, your first effort at diagnosis and repair should be to use
the steps outlined in this section.
