My issue is solved! I could add annotations if I was logged into my admin profile, but not in my regular user profile. Changing the setting in Powerpoint to "always run as administrator" or actually running it as administrator did not help. I had repaired Office 2007, and had uninstalled and reinstalled Articulate. 

I finally uninstalled Office 2007, and installed Office 2010 (I was going to upgrade soon anyway). It still did not allow me to add annotations when logged into my user account. I changed PPT settings to "Always run as administrator"...VOILA!  The annotations feature works as it should when logged into my regular user account.

Many thanks to Miker and Gren!
