Fix for PowerPoint 2003 post April 13 bug [some contents (text, images or objects) have corrupted]

This is important news for those using Microsoft PowerPoint 2003.
I have just noticed that one of my older presentations stopped working.
I tried the usual fixes… and was amazed to see the same problem occurred in ALL
my past presentations… it also happened again on ANOTHER computer.

The error reported:

...some contents (text, images or objects) have corrupted

So… I looked up the problem on Microsoft social site. I found a list of similar cases. Apparently, some security fix on April 13, caused PowerPoint to block itself…
(well, something like that).

The bottom line: there is a fix … you will need to download it via email.
You will get a passcode with the email so keep it. You will need it.

It fixes all my OLD presentations.  But those that I have touched … did not work.

So this is a good lesson on how to create bugs, and how to fix them.
