It's the quickstarter.

If choose custom install and uncheck the quickstarter from the optional
components, the quickstarter will not be installed and thus will not be added
into startup folder.

otherwise, quickstarter will be enabled by default, and the openoffice window
will show up at system startup. This is a bug that has been fixed in 3.4.1:Bug

You can disable it manually: Tools->Options->>Memory, Uncheck
the "Load during system start-up"

file association, in custom install there is a panel that set association for
the MS office types. By default they are unchecked, and the MS office file
types will not be associated with openoffice. It works for me.
