Windows 7: How do I make Windows spell check as good as Google

How do I make Windows spell check as good as Google

I was very disappointing with the spell checking in windows xp and thought they'd defiantly fix it in Win 7 but it's still complete and utter crap.
99% of the time when I misspell a word longer than 6 letters long when right click even when it gives me 4 words for suggestions it's never the correct word and I've actually lost marks in English class before from reading the suggested word too fast as it looked similar.....YET when I type any word into Google by completely butchering the word, sometimes not even getting half the right letters correct it somehow always gives me the correct spelling of the word with 1 freaking correction "NOT 4".
Overall I've very disappointed with windows 7 compared to XP as there are so many pointless useless features that just get in the way at times.
And windows 8 is just a complete joke. I could understand if windows 8 was strictly for tablets/phones but come on, it's like windows is taking steps backwards.

tbh once "Steam" is released on Linux I'm switching and never looking back.
Free upgrades ftw.
You know what they say, the best things in life are free.

UK spell check required not USA.
I am using Outlook 2007 and for some reason the spelling check is underlining words because I am not using the American spelling. This is a very recent issue and I have never had a problem before, so what has changed? If I go into spelling at the far right of the "Message" ribbon the box says...
Microsoft Office
Anyone else finding Google Chrome has a pretty lousy spell check?
every so often, when I mistype a word (such as capitilzation ), it will not have any guesses as to what is the correct spelling for that word, even though the search automatically knows! Even worse, it will mark common words (such as movie) as misspelled! WTBH? :mad:

IE 9 and Spell Check
Can anyone please explain to me why IE9 does not have a native spell-check capability? All other browsers seem to have it. Is there a technical reason that prevents IE from having this? Has MS ever explained why spell-check is not included as a feature of IE (especially in 9 Beta and RC)? Thanks

Issue with Spell Check in Windows Live Mail
Hi - I have an issue with Spell Check in Windows Live on Windows 7 Home Edition. It's an odd problem, as it occurs only about 20% of the time, but often enough to be annoying! When I click on Spell Check, nothing happens. Then I click "send" to send the e-mail. I get this message: "The...

Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail Spell Check
I have my email spell checked before sending. Using Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail I noticed that it also checks the spelling in the To/Cc/Bcc and Subject line. In XP/Vista it did not do that. Is there a way to have it only spell check the text of an email?
