I experienced exactly the same when I in early January this year installed LibreO3.4.5 that at that moment was said to be the latest stable version.
Yesterday I upgraded to LO-3.4.6 because there, according to this mailing list, seem to be too much problems with LO-3.5.x versions.
Without knowing what-why and without any clear instructions from LibO documentation, I spent about a week on experimenting and finally managed to get LibO to work without the Base-module crashing the hole LibO.
My solution was in short:
1 >> I uninstalled previous LibO-installation (also files from AppsData/Roaming, ProgramFiles/Users)
2 >> downloaded and installed from Java's homepage a JRE-file named "Ixpiinstall.exe"
3 >> finally I installed LibO (note! install JRE before LibO)
Voilá - no crashes after that.
There are several versions of JRE and you have to consider whether your system is a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. I tried (almost?) all I could find and the above mentioned was the one that worked with my Win7/prof-32bit (I have OpenO3.2 on my Vista32bit-laptop)
There may today be other JRE versions better suited for your LibO (and my too) - I do not know. Perhaps the LibO experts can give you that advice.
Would it not be convenient for every new LibO-user if that basic info was said (or had a link to) clearly on LibO's main home page?
Yes, there is a 'intallation instruction' but I have not found any instructions about JRE: needed or not needed, how and when to install and what version is recommended and where that version can be found - if needed. As a nice short step-by step instruction.
That to be compared with OpenO that rather clearly says that In OpenO the JRE is already included.

I am trying to learn Base in LO 126.96.36.199 under Vista with all latest updates
I start Base - then I follow the steps shown at http://sheepdogguides.com/fdb/fdb1tableone.htm
The Base wizard starts; I click 'Create a new database' then 'Next'
I say "Yes, please register database for me", "Open for editing" and "Create tables using the table wizard"then click the "Finish" button.
I get a "Save as" dialogue and select /Data Base Projects/FDB004 Phone Book/FDB004.odb
And I get the Windows window that says
"LibreOffice 3.5 has stopped working"
I tried this process 3 times and each time I get the same message
