After upgrading Windows 8 Pro 64-bit to Windows 8.1, Calc will open with a
blank spreadsheet but will freeze (Not Responding) when doing a Load
Document.  The spreadsheet grid turns into a gray pane, probably system
theme. The Menu bar (File, Edit, etc.)  is at the top but unresponsive.
Status bar at the bottom only shows Load Document.  Only the Minimize
on the Title bar at the top works.  It has run at least 60 minutes in this
state with the turning circle.  The only way to exit is click on the Close
button and select Close the program (the other option to select is Wait for
the program to respond) or go to the Task Manager to force close the
program.  All my .ods spreadsheets normally open within 10 seconds.  A new
file is left behind that ends in .ods# and when LibreOffice is opened it
asks me if I want to recover files.  How do I get my computer to open Calc
spreadsheets once again.  I am heavily dependent on printing out
spreadsheets in my personal life and use them to store my personal data
without using paper copies.  I can no longer lookup information I need.
This happened while using version 4.1.2.  The same thing happens with
versions 4.0.6, 4.1.1, and 4.1.3.

If the issue appeared when upgrading to a new windows version, is
reverting not an option?

Also, maybe it's I/O related. Does this happen if you move a file elsewhere
(other drive, USB thumbstick, network share...) and try to open it from
there? Trying this might help finding the cause of the problem (or provide
a temporary workaround)
