Spell check was not a feature on Outlook Express or the default email. Spell check arrived when we installed almost any version of Office so to fix spell check the "supported" way I only needed to uninstall and re-install Office.
It's pretty well done why and how this is so I'll stop here.
Maybe you can help or direct me to a helpful fix or alternate spell check as I tried many posts and got ridicules advise, like disable all my of msconfig (that Crapped me up - I fixed it), some answers telling me to delete all my Vista OS and re-installing it all, to fix only one intermittent problem. I'm now at my wits end, as
I found nothing that worked. But I have used my Vista Business for 2 Years with no problems at allm, only this one issue.
My system :
HP a1218n Pentium IV
2.55 Gb of Ram / 2.99 Ghz
Microsoft Security Essentials (My antivirus)
Windows Vista Business 32 bit (with Service Pack 2)
Microsoft Internet Explorer 9
My Problem :
Windows mail worked great for years, But my one only problem now is when I check my SPELLING before I send my emails my Windows mail shuts down, and it says: "Windows mail has stopped working", and it then it restarts. I have been tiring to get help with this and I can't. It is Windows Mail - Not Windows Live Mail for the Windows Live Essentials will no longer install in Vista.
I Tried a lot.
> A full antivirus scan with my updated "Windows
Security Essentials" (My only AV). All was good.
> A full scan with Malware Bytes, Sophos on demand.
(On demand, a onetime scanner, Mcafee too). No
> I ran the "sfc /scannow" and it finished at 100 % and
reported - No Problems.
> I have tried the Windows Mail - Tools - Options -
Spelling - language settings and changing all the
languages then change it back, and tried all variations
> I tried WMUtil151 (WMutil) from Steven L. Cochran in
the Vista64 forum.
> I also had tried to suspend my Windows security
essentials and tried to check spelling that too did not
> Maybe, it is my Windows Internet Explorer 9 ?
But nothing worked...
I am staring to think there no fix for this as, I posted it in
the Microsoft Forums and everywhere I could nothing had helped as I tried everything, I got.
So maybe you can suggest a Spell checker I can go to ? (No Google Chrome - Gmail) I tried it and I hate it. So can you suggest something. I need some help with someone in the know. I loved my windows Vista mail. it was so sleek and so neat so clean and so straight forward. I love simplicity. I was thinking Thunderbird but the people in CNet said it was really bad...
Thanks, Have a great day.
