I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

All of the sudden my Word XP has stoped checking text in my documents for correct spelling. Even if I goto Tools Spelling it still says it can't find any mistakes even thought I know there are plenty!!! When I first start up and goto Tools and Spelling I get the following message:

Test marked "Do not check spelling or grammar" was skipped

I never have turned anything like that on and can't figure out how to get it to stop--- help???

I use Windows Spelling and Grammar check & this is what I see.

I typed this in a word doc & Spelling and Grammar: English (United States) popped up telling me that I misspelled a word.

Destination Folder Access Denied, then I have to click Continue.

Spelling and Grammar: English (United States) in windows says the sentence below is correct.
Destination Folder Access Denied, then I has to click Continue.

I don?t remember this problem with Win 98se or Me but noticed it in XP & now Vista.

Is anyone out there having trouble with Windows Spelling and Grammar check?

I don't know if anyone can help as I can't get my computer to bring up the error message it originally showed! I am very much a beginner, in other words I don't have much of a clue about these things.

My spelling and grammar check has stopped working. First there was an error message but now when I click on button it just says selling and grammar check complete and I know it isn't because there are spelling mistakes.

I have windows XP, this probably isn't enough info? If anyone has any ideas please spell it out simply!

This problem can be because of a file going bad or being changed. reinstall the program you are using to spell check.

My details are:
Windows 98 operating system. Installed Office 97 professional edition over Office 95 professional
My problem is:
My spelling checker no longer works. Instead I get a message:
The spelling check is complete. Text set to (no proofing) was skipped. To find (no proofing) text click Edit/Replace click More, click Language, click Format and choose (no proofing).

On following as best I could the above cryptic instructions, I found to my horror that parts of my document had been deleted. I have tried to activate the spelling check through Spelling & Grammar tab on Tools Options but without any success. I have looked at the custom dictionary. It is the same as the one I have used for years without trouble when I was running the predecessor to MS Word 97 SR-1. If I try to edit the Custom.Dic I get a message to set the Automatic Spell Checking check box in Tools Options - but there is no such box.
If nobody can solve this problem, will the followinf work?I have two hard discs C and D. If all else fails, is it safe for me to reinstall the Office 95 version of Word on the D disk. I have Office 98 on the C disk (where I put all my programs).

I use Windows Live Mail for all my e-mail stuff. I need to type mails in 3 languages: Dutch, English and French. I'd like to have spelling check for these 3 languages, however spelling check for French seems to be missing. I went into options and then spelling check. There is a box with languages I can use spelling check on. This includes Dutch, English (UK), English (US), English (Australia) and English (Canada). French is not there. I really need French spelling check. How can I obtain that?
If you need more information, please leave a comment.

Thank you in advance for a response.

A:WLM spelling check language problem

Hi Highdetailz, welcome to 7F!

If I understand you correctly, you don't have French listed in the choice of languages box as shown in this example, correct?

Source Step #4: Windows Live Mail 2011: Add a second language to the Spell checking feature | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial

If so I may have found a way to add it. There are also two other choices you can try.

1. Run a SFC /scannow to repair any corrupt files, then check to see if WLM has the French listing back. If that doesn't work:

2. Repair WLM: In your Start menu search box, type wlarp , and click the application highlighted in the results list. Answer yes to the UAC prompt.

This brings up the dialog window to repair or uninstall. Select Repair all Windows Essentials programs. WLM is part of Windows Essentials so you have to make that choice. When the repair is finished check to see if you have French listed.

wlarp stands for Windows Live Automatic Repair Program.
If all that doesn't bring France back, the third way is more complicated, from a thread on the MS community Forum, top of page 2:

Spanish (Castellano): http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/5/E/E5E11D08-498D-4D31-9F84-1C616D79323D/spl_eses2.cab

While checking for misspelled words in a document, you probably click the Ignore Once or Ignore All button a few times. Doing so lets you skip a word that you don?t want to change but that the feature thinks might be misspelled. Spelling and Grammar remembers the words you skip and skips them during subsequent checks. Most of the time, that?s what you?ll want. Occasionally, it?s a problem. You might realize that the word was misspelled and you need to change it. Unfortunately, Spelling and Grammar won?t find ignored words, after the fact.

After I type a new email message in Outlook Express, when I pull down the tools menu, the spelling check option is grayed out, so I am unable to use spelling check. Do I have to buy a spelling check program? My old computer had OE 6.0 with the spelling check in the tools menu. My new computer also is running OE 6.0.

Also, this new computer did not come with Microsoft Word so I installed it from a Microsoft Office 97 disc I have. When I type up a document, I am unable to find a spelling check on any of the pull down menus. There is a "grammer" choice in the tools pull down menu but it does not correct spelling. On the same line as grammer, to the left of it is abc with a checkmark but it doesn't work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

However in the menu on my computer ( Dutch version) this button is not there.

I have a box (in WLM 2009) that can be checked called "check spelling in current input language". Is that the one? I'm not sure what it does since my spelling is checked even if that box is unchecked but maybe it refers to the case where multiple languages are installed.

I have received some complaints that the spelling check for Windows 10 does not work within most webforms and/or internal websites. While I am typing this message I can see squigly lines for nearly each word since my native language is Dutch and this message
is in English. This same effect does not work for all forms or fields. Sometimes it will give a squigly line but it won't offer any alternative options. It looks lik the type of field detemines if the spelling check works or not.

In the past we had an add-in for Internet Explorer called Spelling Check which was a lot more reliable. Since it is no longer available we don't know how to offer the same functionality for all forms and websites.
Please let me know if there is anything that can be done to improve this.
The current spelling check built into Windows 10 itself only seems to check certain field types. For example the field I am typing in right now seems to be working just fine, highlighting errors and making suggestions. Other websites however this feature
does not seem to work. It looks like there is a differentiation between field types.
Some of our web applications/sites no longer have a spelling check now which is a hassle for our users. Are there any known restrictions to the field types that are checked?

I have also posted this question in the Windows 10 forum because I am unsure if this should be something posted there since the issue is with the new Windows 10 spelling check however it is relate... Read more

Hi all,
Earlier this year "Check Spelling as you type" in Word 2003 worked fine. Now it does not and the red wavy line does not appear under wrongly spelled words. (unless I click Spelling and Grammar first).
I have tried every suggestion on this web page with no luck.
The registry item named '1' mentioned in the article was missing.
It's a real mystery as the 'check spelling as you type' still works in PowerPoint and also in Windows Live Mail.
I can reactivate 'check spelling as you type' in a document If I choose to run a spell check via the 'Spelling and Grammar' icon on the toolbar or from the 'tools' menu item. Only then does 'check spelling as you type' begin working again for the current document.
I tried a system restore to June which is our earliest restore point for 2014. (I have restore points for 2012 but inexplicably none for 2013. I'd rather avoid going that far back in time)
I re-installed Microsoft Office 2003
any other ideas?

I couldn't find an answer in the search base.

Upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. Strictly an internet access issue. This is a very randomly generated message, that may pop up at any time. Seems to be a function of Panda's Anti-phishing security and will occur in Opera, Firefox, and Chrome, never use IE so don't know about it. Sometimes, I can go to the previous window (or 2) and everything is fine, advancing back to the original problem window and it will open normally. Sometimes opening another browser will fix the problem. At the bottom of the error message page is a Yahoo search bar. I never use Yahoo, especially since I started getting these messages. I wonder if the problem is related to Yahoo.

http://www.pandadomainadvisor.com/search.php (this is the url displayed when I get the error message). Is there a Panda setting that I can disable or enable to prevent this from happening. The websites are viable and my internet connection is live when I get these messages. I tend to keep several windows open at once and it may infect 1 or 2 or all.

I'd get the diagnostic tools available on the drive manufacturer's web site. And I'd pay attention to SMART details, particularly bad sector count.

There are other tools to measure speed. And other tools to inspect the file system and partitions, rather than the drive itself.

Problem is, hard drives quite often die suddenly and without warning. Healthy today by all accounts. Dead and gone tomorrow.

So the tools won't really keep you from losing data. The way to prepare for that is to back up your stuff so that all a drive failure means to you is that you have to spend money on a new drive and take the time to install it and restore your stuff from the backup.

Last price I saw for professional data recovery from a dead drive was $700 on up. Free tools may or may not help, but if you're backed up that really doesn't matter.
