I just spent a long time creating a slideshow presentation in PP 2007, to be
put on CD and distributed. I included narration. I put the presentation on
CD, and when I open it up in PP viewer, the timing is way off. Pictures,
etc. open up several seconds before the narration reaches that point. It
works fine when I run it on PowerPoint, but the viewer throws it off somehow.
Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

Is there a way to stop showing Fax in the address book?
I have a lot of fax numbers in my Contacts. I do not want to loose them -

Outlook considers fax numbers to be valid electronic addresses, since there
are many client- and server-based components that can use such addresses.
One method to hide fax numbers from the address book is to prefix the fax
number with one or more letters (maybe B for business fax, H for home, O for
other). If the fax number begins with a letter, Outlook won't show it in the

you specify this in the Windows regional settings. Another idea:
- rename your *.csv file to a *.txt file
- now open it with excel. The Import wizard should appear and should allow
you to specify a different delimiter

I downloaded a program Fast At Last and it did not download properly and I

Any suggestions as to how I can remove the program? I believe it may be

You can hide the public views by simply creating a team (non used views or
whatever you want to name it) and share the view to that team(done in the
customize entity fields in the forms and views), this will make it a private
view that only members of that team can see. You can also create new public
