See if going to tools, manage add-ons and enable ie spell works for you.

Yup you are one of the masters Steve. However it should be cavalry, Calvary is where Jesus' cross was.
That just proves I'm not the Master.

Ah, grasshopper. That would most likely work..... if I had the iespell add-on installed. I decided to try the speckie extension instead.

Er, maybe your post wasn't directed to me. This place is great - I forget more than I could ever learn

Does anyone remember that line from an old John Lennon song...

Well I got hit with a large dose of it, that's why I haven't been able to respond in time.

Sunday our Dryer's timer went out, and when I went to go and pick up the part yesterday the brake lines on my '03 Silverado started leaking. The '99 to '06's were noted for that.

I was able to get home okay, and today I found a local mechanic, and had it towed there. Should have it back by Friday.

So with all the running I'm shot, and I'm not really able to concentrate on all of your valuable advice.

I'll try, and have updates by Thursday latest.

I will say I didn't think Calvary looked right, and thought it should've been spelled differently. (Cavalry) maybe it was intended, and I think I have ieSpell and Adobe Reader straightend out.

Then I must have a big check on the way. I learn something new every day here. Better start shopping at Newegg.

I was going to try and answer all the replies in quotation style, but that can get messy quick so I'll try to hit the high points. I will keep some quotes for clarification.


I have ieSpell and Adobe Reader straightened out. I had to do a reinstall of ieSpell, and enable Adobe Reader in CCleaner.

Either update, or uninstall.
That's the rub....I did uninstall, but there are some leftover Folders/Files.
Do I try to remove the leftover Folders/Files (Is there a Silverlight removal tool?) or update them with the hidden updates?
I have not received any new updates for Silverlight since the uninstall.


UsernameIssues,
I looked at that About IE in the help menu again, and if you notice there on the second line it (mine) says Update Versions 9.0.10 KB2744842 I take that to mean that my IE9 is updated up to, and including KB2744842

Does anyone have a higer update version?

I have Silver Light and only have seen it on MS sites as someone said.
I use iespell and had startup DISabled in CCleaner and it still works, it shows up in the right click context menu or by clicking the ABC check mark in replying to posts here on SF.

I had the XSS warning here on SF a few times, but Admin couldn't explain it.
This is another style that I will have to get used to, I prefer the red squiggly lines under a mis-spelled word then right clicking, and picking the correction from the context menu.

The XSS warnings have stopped since the Security reset to default levels.

I have hidden Silverlight updates, and I uninstalled Silverlight.
I need to know about those leftover Folders/Files. Refer to my answer to Noel above.

Paid by the hour? Wouldn't it be less expensive if we were on salary?


Well the Dryer's working again, and I just got a call from my mechanic that the truck is ready.
I feel that my questions about IE9 and then some have been answered so I'll mark this thread solved, but open to further discussion.



If anyone feels I missed something or you need further clarification please post back, otherwise....

As far as the hidden Silverlight updates are concened, I'd Unhide htem, then do a Check for Updates, and re-hide any that come up again - if you find that you need Silverlight for anything, you'll be prompted to install it, and you'll then have to contend with the updates afresh if you do.

I wouldn't bother about the residues - but don't try and rip them out by hand, as that may cause problems when/if you reinstall.

Did what you suggested and found one more Sliverlight (SL) update. Hid that one also, but it seems that those five have now become one with a 12.5MB total.
Code:
Microsoft Silverlight (KB2636927). Download size: 12.5 MB
Update type: Optional
Microsoft Silverlight is a Web browser plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X that delivers high quality video/audio, animation, and richer Website experiences in popular Web browsers.
More information: 
Microsoft Home Page | Devices and Services
Help and Support: 
Microsoft Support
I will contend with the updates if I have to, but I know I will let sleeping dogs lie.

Acknowledged, I felt a sense of "Clockwork Orange" when you said "rip them out by hand "
