It is often the case that new OpenOffice releases trigger false positives from virus scanners.

I put AVG free version on an XP VM, updated virus signatures,
installed AOO 3.4.1 Windows en-US from the website and did a full
scan.  No issues reported.

So if Maurice was indeed getting an AV hit, that suggests he might
actually have something, either preexisting on his machine, or from
downloading AOO from another website.  If it were really a false
positive, wouldn't we be seeing it as well?
