Try this:

Rename these keys: Start > Run > type regedit > press <Enter> > Navigate to the following keys and right click and rename them to:

A. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0old

and

B. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlookold (example for Outlook spell check) AND/OR HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Wordold (for Word spell check)

Reboot, Open Outlook, and Office will recreate them.

Outlook express does not have its own spell checker, it relies on the one installed with MS Office. Unfortunately the one that comes with Office 2007 is no longer compatible with Outlook. At present there is no solution except to install third party spell ckeck software.

Outlook Express - I am trying to change the spell check from French to English?


You need to change the dictionary in office. You can do this under Tools in Word clicking on Spelling and grammar when the options box opens up choose dictionary language and select English. This shoud reset it for all your office programs as your default. However, If you what to change Outlook only, Open Outlook and select tools, Options, Spelling, spelling and autocorrection and custom dictionaries to make a selection

Spell check windows xp home edition


The spell checker usually comes fro Microsoft Office. If you do not have Office or you have Office 2007 you can download Spell Checker For OE 2.1 from the Microsoft site. My guess is you found the spellcecker in Outlook Express is in French. Spell Checker For OE 2.1 is not a Microsoft product but it works well for outlook Express and is free.

You can customize the installation. Put back your Microsoft 2007 Office then when the option menu showed, choose custom installation. Like that you will find option to use english or other language pack support.

Where did you purchase the software from? Many stores as well as larger online retailers offer price protection, usually for 30 days. You will have to contact they retailer directly to ask about their policies.

Also, in which specific programs are you attempting to use spell check? Office 2007 does include dictionaries for spell checking, but they are not compatible with Outlook Express. Spell checking should be available within the Office 2007 applications. If it is not, go to your Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs and Modify your Office 2007 installation. You will need to install the English proofing tools.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
