LibreOffice 3.5.2 Download Continued #4
I checked out the forum link you provided and from the replies within concluded that indeed Open Office was likely to be the issue. So, I deleted all folders/files to do with OO. This action also included following the little tip in the forum which warned about the Quickstarter hidden on the taskbar which can be found when you place the cursor over the Triangle/Show Hidden icons in the bottom right hand area of the Win 7 taskbar.
So, whether it was just the little hidden icon of Quickstarter or the whole OO program, I don't know, but the blitz-all approach succeeded.
Many thanks for your assistance on all this. One happy bunny here!
