PowerPoint keeps trying to repair file

I have a user running Office 2010 that every time they open a given PowerPoint file it prompts them to repair the file: 'PowerPoint found unreadable content in Presentation.pptx. PowerPoint can attempt to repair the presentation. If you trust the source of this presentation, click Repair." If you click repair, it does not appear to make any changes to the file and it opens but it says: "PowerPoint removed unreadable content in Presentation [Repaired]. You should review this presentation to determine whether any content was unexpectedly changed or removed." If you choose 'cancel' as opposed to 'repair' it simply does not open the file. I can't open this same file on other machines running Powerpoint 2010. I have tried running a repair of Office as well as all available office updates to resolve. Any help I can get on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe the file is damaged. Have you tried requesting the presentation or downloading it again? Have you tried to save the repaired file with a different name and see if it will open again? If so do you know what data may be missing?

    Went back and read the question again. Do I under stand that this is the only PC that can open the file eve if it signals an error? I makes me wonder if this is truly a power point file or another type using the PowerPoint extension. It may also be some type of encryption or security.If after the repair takes place, try saving it with a different name. The try opening the new file and see if you still have the issue.

    May be your Microsoft Office not working properly. You should try some alternatives.

    There are 3 methods you can try which we called as:
    1-Online method.
    2-Offline methods.
    3-Using software tools.
    All three methods are good for practice you can try and solve your problem.
