Thank you for this very prompt reply.
Tools -> Options -> Paths entry for "Documents" is blank and I can't
edit it. (The others point to ok-looking appdata/roaming directories for
the correct user)
For My Documents, Explorer -> Properties -> Security for all users /
groups is the same ie all users are set to Full Control, with
everything Allowed except Special Permissions. However, again same for
everyone, all the Allow are grey-ed out; I can't recall if this is
normal or not. I can edit Deny, but I can't edit allow.
Hope this is diagnostic!

Launch as your normal user and have a look at the LibreOffice main
menu Tools -> Options -> Paths panel. Is it pointing to expected
folder? Or, to folders of the administrators group member user you
used for the installation?
If it is point to your user, but you can't edit--you may need to
change folder permissions using the OS Windows Explorer -> Properties
-> Security for the folder and take back ownership. If pointing to
the admin account--you should be able to edit in the LibreOffice Paths
panel--or simply exit LibreOffice and delete/rename your corrupt user
