Beta returned insecure application:

"This installation of Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2003 is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats"

Using provided download link, I downloaded from Microsoft:

"Security Update for PowerPoint Viewer 2003 (KB969615)"

Result: "There are no products affected by this package installed on this system."

Reasonable since I have a full Office 2003 suite installed.
Checked Windows Update and it too does not suggest an update (KB969615 states this is how to tell if it is needed).

fyi

Mike the 'Programmer" had the perfect fix for this one. Check elsewhere in this forum and you'll find it regarding repacing the pptviewer file with an updated one and "Hey presto" it works!

Thanks Mike - it was annoying the sh$t out of me
