this sounds strange and normally OO don't do automatic downloads. It would
be very interesting for us if you can tell us a little bit more

- which version of OOo do you use
- where have you download this version from

Whatever version you use, deleting from the desktop is not enough and you
have to uninstall the software to get rid of any artifacts on your system.
The original unmodified OOo does a clean uninstall.
