As to this matter, I would like to list some common ways to protect your PowerPoint presentations from being edited by others without permission. (convert PowerPoint to WMV)
* To set a password to protect PowerPoint
>> In PowerPoint 2003:
1) Open the presentation that you want to set a password for.
2) On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Security tab.
3) Need to set a password to open the presentation, type a password in the Password to open, and then click OK.
4) Need to set a password to modify the presentation, type a password in the Password to modify box, and then click OK.
5) In the Confirm Password dialog box, retype the password, and then click OK.

2) Click the Office Button, and then click Prepare.
3) Go into the Encrypt Document, and then type the password you want to set, and click Ok.
4) Reenter the password in the blank followed, and then click OK.
5) Or click Restrict Permission, people can get access to your PowerPoint but can not edit, copy or print it.
6) Furthermore, you can click Mark as Final, after this, you will only be able to read it in the future.

Tips when creating a password to protect PowerPoint:
Long passwords can help secure a document, but be sure to create a password that you can remember. Microsoft itself cannot provide assistance to open or modify a presentation whose password you don't remember. But a tool could help you to recover the password with a little cost. PowerPoint Password Recovery PRO is an effective solution for Microsoft PowerPoint presentations that recovers all types of lost or forgotten passwords to open and modify files and supports all versions of Microsoft PowerPoint, including 2003.
