Windows 7: Office spell checker?!?

Office spell checker?!?

I bought Office 2010 and found spell checker is not installed? Is my settings not set properly (US English), or spell checker is sold separate?

Thanks in advance.

Spell check is not sold separately, just to allay any major fears

you should be able to add spellchecker (and anything else that's been left out) - goto control panel >> uninstall a program >> find microsoft ofice 2010 >> choose the 'change' option >> add or remove features >> office shared features >> proofing tools >> english proofing tools >> spelling and grammar checkers. phew.

Thanks for the help guys. As Mickey posted, I didn't have the components installed. I was trying to reduce installation size on my puny ssd drive.
