I just downloaded LO and I used it for some time (maybe 30min), and after a while it just froze(not responding).

So, then "LO is not responding" pops out. So I press "view problem details"

The next thing I notice is that "Print driver host 32 has stopped working" pops out.

So, while I was writing my question here, LO "unfroze"(I think it might have happened after I closed "print driver host 32" tab).

So, how do I fix this?

What is you operating system version and name? It looks to me you have a printer problem not LibreOffice problem. Do you notice this problem using other programs too?

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. Yes, I tried Office 2007 and 2010 professional, ultimate, enterprise and OpenOffice, and the result was pretty much the same.

P.S. 5min ago I've tried running LO in safe mode, and I had no problems
