If you want to remove open office go to control panel and chose 'add/remove programmes'  (XP) or 'programme and features' (vista) and uninstall open office. 

Alternatively remove from start up go to 'run' type in 'msconfig' and uncheck openoffice on start up tab.

That type of message can occur if part of the install file is no longer on the local machine and/or the application was installed from a remote location.
Some applications look for the msi when adding/making changes/deleting the application.

According to this

Quote installs simply without significant registry changes or placing files outside of its Program Files directory: this makes the application easy to relocate to different folders—even on different computers

If that is the case, then you may be able to uninstall by deleting the folder in c/progs.. and then checking theres nothing under the user profile.
Finally then use a registy cleaner or something like CCleaner to make sure theres no orphaned files left hanging around.

it`s not in the start in msconfig

It should be in there somewhere... it may not be under msconfig --> startup tab...  but possibly under the services tab?
Please do not PM me with queries for broadband help as I may not be able to respond.
