I give Power Point presentations sometimes up to 1000 people at a time. Your suggestion that I simply turn off a program's auto update one application at a time is simple not a viable suggestion.

There are so many applications. Some have daily updates, others have weekly, monthly or even yearly. I am afraid that everything will go fine until another unexpected notification pops up during a critical time such as a music or media clip in the middle of PowerPoint. When this happens, the music or video clip stops and thus throws of the timing of the clip which is sometims critical to the timing of the overall PP presentation not to mention the embarrassment to Microsoft and myself publicly. Why did Microsoft not stay with the same system as XP by suspending all pop-ups during presentation mode? Do you know how to get a response to this question from the PP design team?
