PowerPint is part of the Microsoft Office Suites.
Microsoft Office suites do not come in free. You have to purchase it.
Some computers will come pre-installed with a TRIAL version of Microsoft Office, good for 60 days, after which users will have to buy the full version.
Bear in mind that your Windows 7 Starter is the lowest end of Windows 7 versions. It may NOT have a Microsoft Office trial version included at all.
At best, it may include a Microsoft Office Starter version
which does NOT include PowerPoint.
