NIS 2012 completely broke LibreOffice.
I use LibreOffice for everything.
I must have LibreOffice working immediately. Is there a work-around?
What can I do to get it working since installing NIS2012?
Can I uninstall NIS 2012 and reinstall NIS 2011 without making things worse?
Sorry to be so panicky, but I really need to be able to use LibreOffice tonight.

Like I said, I panicked.
I fixed it.
I went into quarantine and restored and excluded the 3 LibreOffice files that NIS 2012 deleted.
Now LibreOffice SEEMS to be working OK.

Make sure you add a scan exclusion for LibreOffice and that you submit a false positive report that Tim links to in the other thread so that it does not happen again.

I submitted a false positive report - but I count 6 files for false positives. This may be because I installed/reinstalled LibreOffice and NIS 2012 picked up the false positives immediately.

I restored the original 3 files that NIS 2012 quarantined that broke LibreOffice. That fixed the broken LibreOffice.
Now, after 2 days, NIS 2012 has quarantined 2 more LibreOffice files. They are: Hatchwindowfactory.uno.dll and Passwordcontainer.uno.dll.
Are these 2 newly quarantined legitimate files? Should I restore these 2 quarantined files, too?
