I installed MS Office XP Pro + FrontPage (So I guess its basically Office Delelopers Edition, more or less) yesterday. When I goto open PowerPoint or any PPT tempelates or exiting presentations I get the illegal operation messege and the detailes include the following
POWERPNT caused a general protection fault
in module 3DFX16V3.DRV at 0009:000002ce.

Any clues on what this means or how it can be solved, as I use PPT often. I tried a uninstall-reinstall install of office XP but didnt help. If nothing, I'll try a system restore and/or I'll download PowerPoint. Thanks!
