Hello there,

One of my customers is having the problem that the Spelling check is not working anymore. Since 27-09-2011. Double words are detected as wrong, but grammar and wrong words are not detected. Even when the customer presses F7.
This is probaly cused by resent Windows - updates.

They are using office standard Word 2007.
Operating system: XP professional sp3 build 2600

I've looked at the options but all the required boxes were enabled.
I've also disabed the custom dictionary and rebooted. Didn't work.
I've also looked at the language setting and disabled addons. Nothing wrong there...
I also have looked at the registry but no unordinary things there.

Resetting the updates would be the last thing we would like to try,

Kind regards,
bolsupport

Okay. Try this:

    * Click on Start -> Run
    * Type “regedit” and click OK
    * Go to this Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Shared Tools > Proofing Tools  >1.0
    * Rename “1.0¿ folder to “zz1.0z“
    * Restart Microsoft Word

Then probably the problem lies with your dutch dictionary file.
