How do you open these suckers? I have one friend who sends funny stuff but sent me today four of these files. I get a box asking which program I want to open it with and I have no idea.

Why would you curse something you simply don't know anything about?

always the helpful one, aren't you?

I believe that M$ has a free standalone viewer for PP files, and there are a few freeware/shareware options as well.

That is a helpful answer.

He has to calm down before he can do anything else.

Cursing a file format he knows nothing about does him no good. Why are they (*%#&^.pps files? He's damning them without knowing a thing about them.

Which shows him to be an idiot.
