Seems you have a spell check that works on internet reply boxes but not locally.

Any chance you're running Norton AV/360/? perhaps others have better ideas. Good Luck!!
Hi, I was gifted an Acer travelmate 4230 laptop last year and have had no problems until a few months ago when I was typing a document and a dialog box popped up. In my short sighted wisdom I choose to ignore the message and clicked "yes" without actually reading it. Since then (no matter what I try) Word tells me that spell check is working but it clearly is picking up zero spelling errors but does still pick up punctuation. I have just started university and obviously cannot afford to hand in essays etc with potential spelling errors. Please help!
I'm afraid I cannot give you too many specifics about the computer as I'm not sure what the operating system etc means! I am using Microsoft Word 2007 if that helps at all. I have tried pressing F7 and repeatedly searching through the options but it has come to no avail. It also has a sticker on it saying it is "designed for Windows XP".
Many thanks in anticipation,
p.s the spellcheck works on this page and others just not Word.
