    Hi,
    I am curretly testing DefenseWall 2.56, installed with Nod32 Av and Outpost firewall pro(HIPS not activated).
    Everything works well,exept when I want to open a .pps file it takes something like 1 minute or more to open...
    I've tried to add Powerpoint to the "trusted" applications and even to the "excluded" but it does not work,still very long...
    Any suggestion to help me?

    my computer:Windows 7
    Core 2 duo 2GB ram

    Thank you:)

    is there a similar delay with any other MS Office application/document?

    No this happens only with Powerpoint.
    If I try to open powerpoint "by itself",it asks me to run it in safe mode and it works.
    But if I open a .pps,then it takes a very long time to show ito_O

    Strange, very strange. Do you experience the slowdown with opening trusted or untrusted .ppt files? Any difference if you open both ones?

    .ppt files are ok,no problem.The problem occurs only when I open a PowerPoint Slide Show file,trusted or untrested.

    What's your version of PowerPoint? Where I could download a .pps file for tests?
