Do you know what version of PowerPoint for Windows those files are saved in? Perhaps the person on the other end could try saving to other versions, if there are options for that, to see if it helps on your end.

com.apple.FontBook.plist

Find that file and move it to your Desktop.
(I have OS 10.5.8 and my plist files are in Users/MyUserName/Library/Preferences)
You might need to Restart to allow the OS to make a new plist file in Preferences.
Now try one of those documents.
Fixed?

Have you used the Search tool on Mac-Forums to look for other possible solutions? ...or MRoogle?

If the person who created the PPT used fonts you don't have, "font substitution" will occur and that can cause problems. Sadly there's no way I'm aware of to easily "search and replace" all instances of a particular (missing) font with one from your own collection. You may need to do that on a slide-by-slide basis.
