I have used OpenOffice for several years, and now I am trying to install
LibreOffice on a Windows XP computer.  About 4/5th the way thru installing
(according to progress on the "status" bar), installation stops (hangs) and
goes no further.  There was no action clicking on "Cancel" button in the
installation window--the only way to close the window was with the Task
Manager.   In case the conflict was with OpenOffice, I removed it.  Now I
can't install LibreOffice or even reinstall OpenOffice.  In the middle of
the installation process, it accesses the OpenOffice website; why?  Any help
is appreciated.

Probably better to ask this on the user list rather than the discuss
list. However, if you look at:

there is a reference to "If you run Windows 2000, you may require this
update before being able to install LibreOffice." which links to:

"Supported Operating Systems:Windows 2000 Service Pack 3;Windows 2000
Service Pack 4;Windows Server 2003;Windows XP;Windows XP Service Pack
1;Windows XP Service Pack 2"

I wonder if perhaps that may be the issue? What version of XP?
