Hi,
Using Mavericks 10.9.2 I have found that when I run Openoffice 4.0.1 that Finder stops responding (everlasting beach ball). When I kill OO and relaunch Finder it still doesn't function properly. If I open a finder window and click on 'applications' or desktop they appear as empty. Also, none of my desktop icons /folders are visible. So, is there a version of OO that works with 10.9.2 and/or how do I restart Finder so that it works properly?

Thanks.

Just noticed that the iMac was getting very hot and Activity monitor showed com.apple.IconServicesAgent was at 313% CPU. I killed it, relaunched Finder and everything is back to normal. Any ideas?

Was there some reason you felt the need to repeat this?
