I had this kind of problems. For example, in addition to random (frequent) crashes, clicking on Tools > Macros > Run macro... would reliably crash LibreOffice, every time.
In my case, the problem was related to Java. Go to Tools > Options... > LibreOffice > Java and select the correct JRE (it has to be a 32 bit JRE6 or JRE7, even on a 64bit OS).
How did I found out?
Here's my hunch: So far what I can tell is that when I updated Java, I had to uninstall the old versions. Now I am trying to find the path to the new version, and I do not know where to locate it. Does anyone know?

I run LibreOffice on two computers, and on one of them, I experience frequent crashes. I had problems opening spreadsheets based on a specific template, but this was fixed by deleting the user profile. However, no it crashes on a frequent basis using both calc and writer. Only use it for Base, while I tend to use OpenOffice for the other applications while I wait for updates. (On OpenOffice I experience frequent problems with OpenOffice Base, that was the main reason why I installed LibreOffice in the first place...)
The computer were LO crashes runs Windows XP, while the other one runs Windows 7. However, I use LO far more frequently on the XP computer (office) than on the Windows 7 (home computer).
