Windows 7: Lost file

Lost file

Hi there,

I recently installed Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer (2007). I reinstalled it several times. Whenever I want to use it to view a pps, the system never finds it. When I search for it, it shows it as being there. When you look at the properties, it says it is located in the start menu. However, when I go there, it's nowhere to be seen.
What precise name would it have if I want to run it to view a pps? Also, where would the system install it? I have looked through program data, program files. Nothing...
It is frustrating.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome

Mine is located in start menu, too

Type the name power point in search. When the name come up just left click on it to start the program.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I didn't express myself clearly. What I want to achieve is to associate files with the program. That's where it doesn't find PowerpointViewer.

Lost file
I accidently copied a file in the wrong direction and when asked if I wanted the fie replaced, replied yes, and the older file version replaced the latest version. When you "replace" a file, does the file space actually get written over, or does it likely remain intact and marked as a deleted file...
