OpenOffice keeps asking me to register

Hi there,

Everytime I load OpenOffice, it asks me if I want to register. Does anyone know how I can stop this? Is there some locked setting file OO tries to write to?

Help me!

I think I just said that I am already registered when it asked me. I am registered but I don't think it actually checked.

I chose the option "Already Registered" but it keeps asking me everytime I open OpenOffice.

I had the same problem when I installed OO as root and ran it as a regular user. My solution was to run it once as root and tell OO that I was already registered.
One time I installed it in the "wrong" directory and that didn't work. I had to go fishing for the configuration file and manually edit it. I'm sorry I can't remember where it was.
