So I ran into a problem using Open Office when I was writing a paper for class. My computer froze, and I attempted to force quit open office to maybe avert a crisis (AKA have to shut down and lose everything). Now, every time I attempt to open the program, the option to "restore windows" or "don't restore windows" comes up, but I click the buttons and they don't work. The message won't go away and I can't close the window. Thus, I can't use the program at all now. I re-installed the program and its still happening. I'm using Mac OS X 10.7.3. I'm terrible with technology, so I'm hoping to get this resolved. Thank you!!!!! :D

Search for and delete either recovery.xcu or registrymodifications.xcu. Which one you have depends on your version of OOo.
