I believe that this problem is solved.
I'll past in a message that I sent to to the List a few days ago.
This us an update of the problem that I was having.
I am using Win 7-32

Again my thanks to Hagar who tried to help, but my computer knowledge is 

I think that I fixed it; time will tell.
I deleted all copies of OO 3.3 & 3.4
Then when into Windows Explorer and found an Open Office folder at: 
I deleted this folder.
Ran my Registry Cleaner (was this necessary ?)
Downloaded and installed fresh install file.
The program seems to be working; I opened several files (.odt & ods) 
made some

Again time will tell; not certain why the above worked.

Hope the above is of interest.
It is my opinion that the install file from Apache should have taken care
of all this.
