OpenOffice Not Responding

I know most prefer solution: I need to uninstall open office and install it again. But, I don't want to do that. Any other ways to diagnosis the problems?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Reinstalling won't change anything anyway. Try to reset your OpenOffice user profile.
Make sure there is no soffice.bin process in the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc).

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.

Not responding on Windows is often caused by left-over parts of OpenOffice. You must remove these. Start TaskManager (Ctrl Shift Esc) and kill _all_ soffice processes shown on TM's tabs. Note soffice, with an intial "s".

Go to task manager and close all the processes running for open office then relaunch the open office. It might work.
