Are you clicking on an existing presentation, or are you trying to start a new one?

Did you have a trial version of office installed before you installed your version? If yes uninstall both reboot and install again.

Office 2007 is fully compatible with Windows 7, so your installation must be faulty. Please give the exact error message. Can you open any of the other Office applications, like Word or Excel?

OR, he's trying to bring up an existing file that is in an incompatible format or is corrupt. Office 2007 started limiting the earlier versions that can be opened due to possible security concerns. There is a registry tweak you may need to do that will allow opening the earlier versions. It is described in Microsoft's knowledgebase for Office.
