I'm running Oo 3.2.0 build:9483 on Windows Vista 32bit.

A similar thing has happened a few times before but today I jotted it down.

I tried to open a spreadsheet (.xls) using calc by double clicking on the file icon (calc is the default program).

The spreadsheet wouldn't open. I tried a few times.

As nothing was happening I did ctrl/alt/del and started Windows Task Manager.

When I looked under the 'Processes' tab I found four copies of soffice.bin running, 4 copies of soffice.exe running and 4 copies of scalc.exe running.

I deleted the copy of soffice.exe that was taking up the most memory and the 11 remaining OpenOffice processes immediately all closed down and then the spreadsheet opened.

I guess its a bug of some sort.

Anyone else experienced this?

How does one report it so that it will be fixed?

The framework loads, but the spreadsheet or document takes forever to load. I can't figure out what the issue is! It happened all of a sudden. It was functioning fine until about a week ago I think. It's super irritating when I'm trying to meet deadlines or pulling up documents to show my supervisor.

Mine doesn't even work better if it reboots. Anytime I try to open a new document or a saved file, even if the program is already running, it takes several minutes to have the spreadsheet ready to view and use. So frustrating, especially in a time crunch!

After doing what Robin.henderson proposed, it worked well immediatly after. One of the soffice.bin process was taking up to 111 MB, so something was going on there, but don't know what.

Killing the soffice.bin works with me as well, but hey guys, that can't be a solution....

I guess the firts soffice.bin process is trying to do something special for that day/ hours (maybe searching for updates???).
After killing this soffic.bin process he thinks this check is done and continues.
Can anyone check in the code if this is the case and solve this irritating bug!

Thanks in advance!!!

I have had this problem and restart cleared it, however it is not doing so now.
I tried uninstall and install and that did not help. When checking for updates after the install I got failed check, curious?
Clearing items from processes sounds like a good workaround to try but not very satisfactory.
