Win 7 pps

Hi All,
A good friend of mine just bought a new computer, it has Win-7. I sent him a file of old black and white photos from the internet. It is a power point show. He was unable to open it, a box poped up and said he would have to activate a Microsoft program and it would cost him around 50 bucks.
Is there some free program he could downlod instead of spending more money.
Sorry I don't have more information about his new computer.
Thanks again,

He could download the free MS Powerpoint viewer, or he could download either Open Office or Libre Office and learn to use it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Powerpoint Viewer
