Powerpoint crashes when user manipulates charts within a presentation.

This is a known issue from Microsoft and there are no hotfixes as of today, or the ones available do not work. Workaround is to use a small app to have Powerpoint start with affinity set to one CPU only.
Application is called RunWithAffinity and can be downloaded here.

You get this error message when clicking on a link in Outlook. Chrome was probably installed, set as default browser and then uninstalled.

Resolution – Windows XP:
Solution 1
Go to Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs, click on Set Program Access and Defaults.
Open up the configuration whichever is selected and change the default web browser to something else.

Solution 2:
If you use older versions of IE then upgrade it to the latest one.

Solution 3:
The problem can be caused due to the corrupt or damaged key HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Classes\htmlfile\shell\open\command.
Create and run Reg file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@=”\”C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\IEXPLORE.EXE\” -nohome”

Change its value from 1 to 0.
