System Wide spell checker?

Does Win 7 have a system wide spell checker, something that will highlight all misspelled words with red underlining, then allow you to right-click on it to select the correct spelling?

My win 7 was doing it for a while now it has stopped?

Not Win 7. Your email client should have one. There is nothing in Win 7 that you could write to.

There is one on here that you could try. When typing a message, look in the top right hand corner and you will see a blue check mark. You can DL a spell check.

Thanks, but I'm looking for a spell checker for the whole computer, not just email, the web or a word processor.

Where else can you type except the places you mentioned above??? If you are looking for one that does all three places, you won't find that.

The spell check that "bigmck" is referring to is probably as close as you'll get. When you click on this spell check it gives you a site you can go to and download and it becomes available for your whole system. I'm using it myself. It's called IESpell

P.S. bigmck, love the Santa hat.
