OK, now we know that you are using Windows and stir up your hard disk to solve obscure problems. What is the exact error message Does the problem occur with all documents Does the problem occur with new documents (File>New>...) If the problem occurs with one file or a few files. Can you tell us some details about the file(s). Are we guessing about Word documents What is your office version (Menu:Help>About...)
Error loading BASIC of \document file:///C:?Documents%20and%20Settings/shawn%20halter/Applications%20Data?OpenOffice.org2/user/unmo_packages/cache/uno_packages/8B.tmp_/ConvertTextToNumber-1.0.0.oxt/CT2N/script.xlb: General Error. General input/output error. Then I click OK and it gives me the same message again. So I click OK

Any suggestions on how I can find it?
That could be the reason for the error message. Call menu:Tools>Extensions... and remove the "Text-to-Columns" add-in. If this is not possible for some reason, shut down the office including the quick-starter and rename/move your profile C:\Documents and Settings\shawn halter\Applications Data\OpenOffice.org2\ as Hagar suggested.
For what its worth, I have Vista and I had this same problem. I solved it by: 1. Making sure all hidden files were shown. 2. Going to AppData/Roaming/OpenOffice.org 3. I tried to delete this file but, was unable to, because Vista would not allow me to take authorization of this file. I used a utility called Unlocker which allowed me to delete this file. 4. Then I reinstalled OpenOffice and this took care of this nagging problem.
