The second and third downloads were probably unnecessary. There is a procedure for checking the integrity of your download: http://download.openoffice.org/2.2.0/md5sums.html

You could try the "email us" button on http://www.tutorialsforopenoffice.org/ for help with your other questions. Otherwise, over to Windows users.

I ran into the same problem as 312sycamore. I will add that everything works EXcept
the quickstart. Is there a work around to this?

Quick note: All my shortcuts for open office work. I updated from 2.0.3 to 2.2
Running xp with sp2

After installation, have you tried Tools - Options - OpenOffice.org - Memory - select Load OpenOffice.org during startup?

Have you upgraded or installed OOo for the first time ? If it's an upgrade, the old shortcuts don't work, you've to use those of the new folder created in the Start menu and replace those that were already on your desktop. The new icons can be drag'n dropped on the desktop.

No clue for the quickstarter, this is rather strange. Are you sure the icon is not hidden in the systray ? Windows often hide shortcuts not used often.

I ran out of ideas until I saw this thread : Installing with Vista. Are you also using Vista ?

OOo does not install icons in the desktop. If you want one, you can click on Start -> Programs -> OpenOffice.org then RIGHT-CLICK on one of the OOo applications, select Copy, then RIGHT-CLICK on your desktop and select Paste.
