We have a PC with Windows XP SP3 installed along with Office 2007.

The problem we have is that the dictionary keeps resetting to US dictionary when we want it to be UK. We change this and then it resets next time we log on.

Can anyone help?

Hi carrgater31,

Try:

Start -> Control Panel -> Regional and language options (need to be in classic view) -> Languages Tab -> Details -> set default input language (To UK) -> then below ->select English US ->  Remove -> Apply -> OK

Let me know if this helped.

Cheers
