Windows 8.1 with Comodo security. Attempt to install AOO 4.1 resulted in quarantine because of the trojan. The new install killed off AOO 4.0 so now I have no office apps available. Not good.

If you downloaded AOO from their official site ( ), then it probably is just a false positive. Antivirus software are often too eager to mark stuff as viruses because they rely on inaccurate heuristics (in fact for Windows 8 I would suggest running only Windows Defender and certainly not paying for antivirus).

This is the Ask site for LibreOffice, though. Maybe you could try the latest LibreOffice version from and see if it runs well? :)
