Windows 7: Spellcheck's Autocorrect in IE10 Driving Me Nuts!

Spellcheck's Autocorrect in IE10 Driving Me Nuts!

And don't say short trip!

All seriousness aside, I finally upgraded to IE10 yesterday and, so far, I've been loving it, especially the spellcheck except for the stupid autocorrect function. I've caught it "correcting" words that actually were spelled correctly (or, at least, the way I intended). It scares me to think of the instances of when I don't catch the autocorrect miscorrections. So far, I've only found how to shut off spellcheck but not just autocorrect only. Anyone know how?

If you go to View installed updates you'll see the language version of spell checker and a Hyphenations update which I believe is the update that corrects as you type.
I've got an iphone 4 which does the same silly thing ie10 does :)

For some odd reason, IE10 "decided" to stop autocorrecting. I have no idea why and don't care as long as it keeps behaving.

For some dumb reason, auto correct is working again (mutter, mutter, mumble, mumble). What really annoys me is it autocorrects capitalization. I first noticed it when typing the name for LapTop magazine; it "corrected" the T. Since then, it gives me the squiggly line when I type the name with the uppercase T so apparently it can be trained but that would depend on me catching it doing the initial autocorrect, which is highly unlikely with my ADHD.

UAC Driving Me Nuts!
Hello- I just updated my Opera browser. Now when I click on the icon in the task bar to open, I get the User Account Control pop up. It just started doing it, and it annoys me greatly. Can anyone please explain to me why this is happening and how to correct it?

USB Problem. Driving me nuts!
It may be coincidental, but I bought a memory stick off ebay which turned out to be fake. Since that time, I found that every time I turn on my Acer Aspire laptop it will not recognize anything (stick, drive, camera, ipod etc.) plugged into the USB ports or a card in the memory card socket. No...
