Solved: Microsoft Word Spelling check inoperable

Q: Solved: Microsoft Word Spelling check inoperable

My computer did not come with Microsoft Word so I installed it from a Microsoft Office 97 disk I have. It works fine except there is no spelling check function. On my old computer, it was the first choice on the tools pull down menu and it was a spelling and grammer check. On here now is only the grammmer check. It does show abc with a check mark next to the word grammer, but it doesn't correct spelling.

Any help on this one?

I have word 2000, and it will not check the spelling. I have to go into language and uncheck "do not check spelling and grammar". This is with all word files.

A:word will not check spelling


Do a search for and delete all copies of the MS Word template file


This template file may be corrupted and causes many problems including the sort of thing you have.

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:

The spelling and grammar check is complete
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???

A:Word XP no more spelling check?!

Ok so I found that under Tools - Langauge there is a little check box that turns the spelling function off! I have no idea how it would have gotten turned on in the first place!

I can't explain how it happened, but i had a frozen microsoft word screen.I had to shut it down thru task manager, and when i shut down the computer (windowsxp) i had to turn the power to do so.

when i turned it back on and attempted to open word, a window keeps popping up telling me tht word couldnt recover a document (which wasn't being used anyway) when i click OK, i get a message for another file, and another... hundreds or thousands of them. after seemingly going thru all my doc documents, it has moved on to wbk.

So microsoft word is nonfunctional, and i can't tell if I have lost all my documents.

Help, please!!

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?

A:Word 2003 - 'Check Spelling as you type' no longer works correctly

You have have tried everything I would have. Unfortunately Microsoft no longer supports Office 2003 products. So you're not going to get much help from them.

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.

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).

Hi. I was using Microsoft Office Word to create a document and then tried to spell check it at the end. It said that spell check could not check some of the text because it was marked "do not spell check." I didn't mark any of my text as not to spell check. I'm not sure how it happened. This document is for my college class and I really need it to be spell checked. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

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.

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.

I have tried the "tools, language, set language, English (uk) and then default, even on a blank document to try and change the normal template. Still every time I look at the language it has English (US) and English (Aust) above the line. I like having the Aust English as I am from Australia, but I want to permantly expunge all mention of US english. It still when writing new documents etc. starts off in US until i "select all" then set language as UK (by just pressing the ok, not the defult).

Sorry if this isn't the right category. Is there a way in Word to flip letters of a mispelled word. Example, "thier," flipping the i and e. I remember being able to do it in some program, but that was umpteen years ago and probably not a Microsoft product.

A:Spelling Errors in Word

I don't quite understand your question, but this'll probably work for you:

If you keep typing beleive instead of believe, you can hit Tools-Autocorrect and on the Autocorrect tab, make an entry that replaces "beleive" with "believe". It'll automatically fix that for you.

If the word is a real word both ways, then do a find/replace (ctrl-h) and type the wrong word in the Find box and the right word in the Replace box. Hit Find, let it find it and decide whether you want to replace or skip that instance until you've checked all instances of that word.

I'm not sure how swapping the i/e would be any easier than either of those tools.

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

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?

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.

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.

So I got on the computer and opened Microsoft Word, and was able to duplicate the problem time after time but not every single time. When I simply open word, then click to close Word, the box appears, and he verified it is the same box he saw. It says exactly as follows, no more, no less, and every time reads the same -

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program:C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 10\WINWORD.EXE
abnormal program termination

So I tried to research it, and came across a fix on Microsoft's support site saying remove something called COM Add-ins. I did so by following each step removing the one COM add in i found, and it did not resolve the problem at all. It still errors out. SO I grabbed the master disk and un... Read more

First, welcome back!!! (although, vaguely, it's like seeing your cousin after many years at a funeral...nice to see you, sorry about the circumstances....)
Well, this isn't fun - the more I looked, the more "answers" and causes I found...
(I think you probably did what the above is about - COM add-ins)
and two that seem similar, but aren't the same (good ol' MS!)

Good luck and let us know if you get this fixed - and what did it!

Hi canwolf

Check in the Registry for these keys, and give the other users sufficient permissions:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\Spelling

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\Grammar

This article goes into more detail:
