Default Password Protection

I am having the same trouble that Shirl had with her PowerPoint. I put a
password to open and a different password to modify and now I cannot close
PowerPoint Presentation without taking off the passwords. I have downloaded
all the updates for Microsoft 2003. Can Anyone help me?

I don't see Shirl's post, so can you tell us what happens when you try to
close PPT without taking off the passwords?

The powerpoint will not close out unless I take off the password.

Do you get an error message?

Are you logged into the computer using a roaming profile?

No, I don't get an error message. Nothing happens. It doesn't save and it
doesn't exit out.

Also, when I put a password to open and a different one to modify, I do it
in Tools | Options | Security. Clicking OK there doesn't close the
presentation, it just adds the passwords. When I click the X in the upper
right corner of the window to close PPT (and, therefore, the open
presentation), I'm prompted to save the file and I can do so.

I guess I'm having trouble understanding the steps you're taking to add the
passwords, save the file, and where the save (or exit) fails.

I seem to recall some weird issues with roaming profiles, which is why I
keep asking about that.

I also seem to recall some issues if you change the encryption strength for
passwords when you go to Tools | Options | Security | Advanced. What have
you chosen there? (You may also find this under File | Save As, then click
Tools in the Save As dialog and choose Security Options | Advanced.)
