OK. For IE9, 8, 7 and 6, you can install IE7 pro IE7Pro - The Ultimate Add-On for Internet Explorer an Add on who add a Spell Checker

Speckie works great for me and functions exactly like the chrome / ff spell checkers... finally Speckie - spell check for IE

I'm running win7x64 with IE9rc ...

Ive used IE7Pro and there are numerous problems with it.. development ceased on it about 2 years ago and the spell check is with a search box, not inline, so it's very awkward.. forget IE7Pro...

Speckie doesnt appear to work too well. It works on their site, but not in several message boards I use, like this one. Out of the few options that are out there, none work well. IE7 isnt automatic on many sites either and I guess the devs of IE7 stopped doing anything with their Add On almost two years ago.

It's annoying that a feature that seems like it would be so simply to incorporate, MS decided to do nothing. I really, really wanted to use IE9 as my main browser, but not having spell check is a big negative for me. Not because im illiterate but its so easy to misspell when you are just typing away.....that and when youve been out of school for many years now lol

Speckie didn't work for me either. I'm using ieSpell at the moment. ieSpell works with the 32 bit version of IE 9, just not the 64 bit version. Microsoft seems to want to force you to use the 32 bit version anyway so thats what I end up running most of the time.

Oh, Speckie works just fine for me, on this board too.

I had been using ieSpell for years, but had to switch to Speckie when I got Win 7 Pro x64 on my new laptop. So far, I am very pleased with Speckie.

I'm using Speckie on IE9 x64 and x32 release version since day one and it pretty much works perfect, so I don't get whats going on with you other guys... maybe a conflict amongst other add ons, IE7 pro will definitely jack IE9 all up... dunno....... also the dev will answer an email same or next day and fixes stuff right away.... he seems motivated to get it right...

the reality is if you want FF or Chrome like spell check in IE, Speckie is the only game in town...

Speckie installs into %appdata% instead of %programfiles%. Possibly, some people have trouble executing "data" out of %appdata% due to anti-virus restrictions.

could be.... I had problems with Windows 7 file and download security using avg and avast... I went to MS Security essentials and never had a problem again... everything works perfect... no problems whatsoever...

so I'll say this... with a plain vanilla MS installation: Windows 7 + IE9 + MS office + security essentials + full updates + speckie... I never have problems ever..... if you are someone who jacks with 50 different add ons and security apps... removes them... uses multiple or not up to snuff antiv... you cant really expect a stable system if you dirty it all up like crazy like that....

I see no new info on this in the last 10 months or so -

I've found IEspell works in both IE9 and 64-bit Windows, but it corrupts your text form. So, I'm still waiting for someone to develop a new IEspell. Funny, Safari has a great Spelling and Grammer module Built in, and Microsoft is too chintz to do the same! O, so, Speckie you say? Thanx for the link.
