I have found that Openoffice won't start particularly after I have been opening and closing several files. I found that by looking in Task Manager, in processes, that there many instances running of soffice.bin*32 and soffice.exe*32, perhaps as many as eight. I found that by killing all of these that Openoffice will start. I am running 64 bit Vista Home edition.
Can anyone suggest what's going on and how this behaviour can be curbed.
