mac's default is opening downloaded material in powerpoint

Every time I try to download something (i.e. Silverlight), when I double click the content my mac wants to try to open it through Microsoft Powerpoint. Is there a default setting that I need to change? I have tried opening it through different applications, but am a newb when it comes to Macs. Anything would be helpful, thanks.
