PowerPoint issue please help me…

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello guys,

I have a Toshiba laptop (P4) with Intel processor, 512 MB RAM and 80 GB hard disk. I recently installed Office 2007 in it. Last night when I tried to save my work, I came across an unknown error (mentioned below):

Microsoft Office PowerPoint

You are attempting to save a file type that is blocked by your registry policy setting.

This error is quite new to me. I don’t know how to resolve it. Is this problem related to MS Office? 

And can I resolve this by re-installing MS Office?

Please try to send solutions as soon as possible.

I would be pleased to get your reply as soon as possible!

This issue appears due to these registry keys because they do not give permission for a set value.

  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAcroExch.Document
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{B801CA65-A1FC-11D0-85AD-444553540000}


  • For removing this problem log on to your computer as an administrator.
  • Use Regedt32.exe to view the following registry keys:
  1. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAcroExch.Document
  2. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{B801CA65-A1FC-11D0-85AD-444553540000}
  • Grant all users (everyone) the "Set Value" permission on each of these shared registry keys.
  • And if you feel some difficulty in above solution you can uninstall in after uninstalling go to C: and set there program files and find MS Office 2007 and remove it completely now install it again and now your problem is solved.

Hey friends,

This error occurs mainly in Microsoft Office 2010. It occurs as the registry setting does not contain the file type which we are trying to save. You need to disable the restriction on opening the files that were blocked by the registry settings.

You can also override the registry policy settings by moving the file to a trusted location. If a folder is designated as s trusted file source and any file saved in that folder is assumed to be a trusted file.

When you open a trusted file, all content in the file is enabled and becomes active, and users are not notified about any potential risks that may be contained in the file, such as unsigned add-ins, Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macros and links to the content on the Internet, or database connections.
