I have three papers due this week and its nearly impossible to get work done with the whole
document being underlined in red. Please help me fix this issue.

Try renaming your OO user profile.

If you are using Windows close OpenOffice and the Quickstarter. Open File
Explorer. Copy and paste %appdata%\OpenOffice\4 in the File Explorer (sometimes called Windows
Address Bar and press Enter. Rename the "user" folder - "user.old" is a good choice. Start

This cures most spellcheck problems.

This happens usually because the computer has been powered off too hastily or the laptop lid
closed before the internal buffers of the hard drive have flushed to the disks.
