4. Get open office :) And PS just in case you have this power point problem in the future:
You open up a presentation and things are jumbled - add a better printer driver. Weird I know, but PPT uses the printer driver (at least in 2007) for rendering (I just solved that problem for a teacher last week, worked like a charm after she installed a printer driver).

It is a fairly well known issue with 2007 and a google search on ppt 2007 printer driver should bring up some decent hits.
