Word Perfect 12 Spell Checker error

When I go to use the spell check feature in Word Perfect 12, I receive the message "no error string for this error".  Also, as I type, all the words are underlined in red.  When I hit the no error string for this error box I have to keep hitting it  and eventually I will get through the letter but usually the program gets an error and I have to reboot.

Also I am also getting the message "unable to initialize, make sure user word list is available" when typing anything after a period (.) such as Mr. and Mrs. comes out Mr. And Mrs.

Please help as I type a lot during the day and rely alot on spell check.

Thank you

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

The simplest fix is to uninstall and resintall the software to fix the problem. Try that first.
And always make backup copies of your documents outside of your computer (CD or USB hard drive) to make sure you have saved your most important work.
