Spellcheck autocorrection

How can I get the type of spell check on Windows 7 that exists on an iPhone, that automatically corrects words that are misspelt?

Hi dearkarla, welcome to 7F!

Is there a particular application such as a word processor or browser that you want to use this auto-corrector with? Most word processors will do that automatically if you have it turned on.
If it is for something different, please elaborate.

Hi, currently when words are misspelt, a red line appears underneath it, but I want automatic spell correction that corrects words that are misspelt and you can continue typing without having to go back to each misspelt word and correct manually.

Okay, but what application/program are you using? There might already be a setting you can make to do that.

Auto-Correct will only work on the most common spelling errors. Auto-Correct doesn't always know what word you mean. Words like write, rite, right and Orr, ore, or cannot be corrected without knowing other words in the sentence. Outside of word processors that will check the use within the sentence, simple spell checkers will not and just flag the word for you to pick from a selection.

I've had Auto-Correct bite me a few times so it's not good to rely on it 100%.
