    Fairly new to my Mac Book Pro (several months old). I downloaded Open Office.org to use with simple word documents and spreadsheets and to be able to open existing docs created in MS Office. Open Office works fine but for some reason it often disappears from my Mac. I can't find the program anywhere. I will use Spotlight to try to find it and nothing. I feel like the program is still there as I haven't uninstalled anything. Sometimes it's listed as the default program to open a word doc and other times it isn't. Can't figure that one out either. Where should I look for it on my Mac? Otherwise I need to download it again and start over. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Did you actually move the program from the image it was on or were you just running it from the image? For it stay on the computer you need to copy it from the image to the applications folder.
