Open Office Crashes/Hangs ALL the time!

It has been happening to me for the past year and is getting beyond belief!

It happens on all my computers and operating system:-

Laptop with Vista
Laptop with Windows 7
PC with WIndows XP
PC with Windows 7

I therefore do not think this is anything to do with my computers, so must be an OO issue.

Anyone know when this will be fixed? Its un-useable otherwise.

Thanks

I also have been having trouble with frequent crashes for some time. I am using Windows XP. There was no problem when I first started using OO but it began to do this after 6 months or so. I seems to happen more often when using calc. Sometimes when I open a file it is unresponsive from the start and sometimes it is associated with saving a file. It really happens in a wide range of circumstances and is very frustrating.
I have tried renewing my user profile but the problem still occurs.

I had a crashing problem also. It turned out to be a defect in my Carbonite schedule:

Try resetting the user profile http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=12426 . If you upgraded from 2.x don't import your preferences when asked.

I used to copy my profile over when I upgraded my PC or made a clean installation.

I have just installed a clean version of Windows 7 Professional and I did not copy the profile files over. OOo crashes almost every time I use it.

We just bought a new Toshiba Laptop with Win 7 for my son.

We downloaded the Latest Open Office

Open Office Freezes and takes about 30 seconds to a minute to release. It does this on and off while working with any document all the time.


In contrast My sony Vaio with XP works fine with OO. So I am guessing that there is something wrong with Win 7 or MS purposely wrote a bug in W7 to F with OO.

Any thoughts

Thanks
Dave

OOo runs fine on WIN 7. No MS conspiracy. Try resetting the user profile using the link in my earlier post.
Temporarily disable your Ant-Virus and/or firewall to see if one or both interfere with OOo.

OOo crashes constantly on Win7. With everything closed, try opening a Calc spreadsheet, and it will crash, consistently. And no, it doesn't help to reset the profile or reinstall.

I'm running Calc on WIN 7 32bit and I'm not experiencing any crash issues. The same is true for the other apps that are part of the suite. There is something in your environment that is causing the problem. Try cleaning the registry and/or using Revo Uninstaller to make sure it is completely uninstalled.

3.2 OO and 3.2 go-oo crash every single time that I try to save a MS Word document that has cells or fields on it. The previous versions never crashed and I have added NO new software for months.

Very aggravating.

After upgrading to 3.2, I started having problems with Writer crashing EVERY TIME I tried to start it, while all other OO applications would open fine. I tried re-installing and also resetting my profile multiple times, but this was no help. However, I am able to start Writer without crashing by right-clicking and choosing "Run As Administrator". It will then run the program without issue. Hope this helps others who run into similar problems.

Cheers,
Scott

Finally,I got my open office working without hanging/crashing, after many clean installs and deleting profile . Here is what I did:

1. Uninstall Open Office.
2. Delete your profile
3. Install Open Office again
4. As @brightwork said, execute it with "Run as Administrator"
5. If it still crashes after these, then go to Tools -> Extension Manager and remove the french dictionary or any other extension that seems that is installed, but you can update.

hope this helps

cheers
