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.
