PowerPoint is a feature-rich presentation program used by millions across the globe. The application, part of the MS Office suite, lets you create stunning presentations with ease and convenience. However, at times, certain PowerPoint errors might baffle you. The problem increases when you cannot access the information stored in a presentation. This, mostly, happens when a presentation contains a damaged object (s) or if a file is itself corrupt. To handle corruption and recover maximum amount of information, you can employ several corrective steps provided by Microsoft. But, if you cannot conduct successful recovery, it is recommended that you opt for a third-party powerpoint repair software.

"Your system is low on virtual memory. To ensure that Windows runs properly, increase the size of your virtual memory paging file."
Upon receiving the error message, you might think about increasing the size of virtual memory, but the fact is you cannot eliminate the error message this way.
