You should just be able to place the .ppt file, or a shortcut to it, in the Startup folder.

 

For XP: Start > All Programs > Startup

Cheers thanks for the help. Hopefully this will force me to start revising.

That would cause it to open in PowerPoint, but not in presentation (slide show) mode. I believe there is a way to do that, however. Perhaps a command line toggle or something.

If you open your slideshow in PowerPoint and chose Save As and then change the file type to PowerPoint Show (*.pps) then when you open that file it will immediately start the presentation (full screen) and will not open PowerPoint.

 

Then place that .pps file in the Startup folder.
