Office Spell 2010 Spell Check not Working
I ran into a strange problem with spell check. Seems it had stopped working for no apparent reason. Here is what I found that fixed it.
a. Close Word and any other open applications.
b. Click on Start | Run | Open and type "regedit" (without the quotation marks).
c. If the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Override exists, delete it.
d. Exit the Registry Editor.
e. Restart your computer
I validated that on most computers the Override key does not exist. I am not sure Office 2010 beta placed these keys as it expired.
Hope this helps if you find the same issue.
