Hi Ayesha,


Thank you for contacting Microsoft Office Community and We will be glad to assist you with your concern. I understand that the PowerPoint application is slow when playing presentation or editing the presentations.


I have a couple of questions before we proceed.

1. Does this occur to a specific presentation or even with other presentations?

2. Does this occur even when creating a sample presentation?

3. Are you able to work with other Office applications apart from the PowerPoint?


Let me help with you. As you have already re-installed the Office suite, follow the steps to determine and fix the issue.


Method 1:
Let us change the default printer and check if the issue is fixed. The link below explains how to change the default printer:


Method 2:
If the issue occurs, let us restart the computer in clean boot and verify results. Refer the following article to restart the computer in clean boot:


Note: After you have finished troubleshooting in clean boot, ensure you restart the computer in normal mode.


Method 3:
Run the PowerPoint 2007 diagnostics and verify results. Refer to the following link:


You may also refer to the following link on Tips for improving the performance of your presentation:


I hope the steps provided in the above methods fix the issue. If not, reply and we will be happy to help you.


Thank You
