Windows 7: word cannot find the spelling file MSSpell3...

09 Nov 2012   #1

word cannot find the spelling file MSSpell3...

word cannot find the spelling file MSSpell3.dll or mssp232.dll for

Can anyone help me with this...

Win 7 has lost the spellcheck files for Office XP. Do they usually just disappear??

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the full program - but WIN7 still can't find the files. Aren't they on the program disc??

So why won't win 7 install them?

MSN don't have ANY suitable answer, or resolution, (or the files!)

BTW - I suggest win 7 is not fully uninstalling the program, (?) because when I reinstall, all my chosen defaults are still there. This does not happen with other software, where all setting are wiped and program defaults reinstated.

There is also MIcrosoft Office Starter 2012 which may be interferring or in conflict? although I haven't activated this program because I don't want the pre-packaged advertising bundle.

Can anyone advise me on a proper UNINSTALL or how to get back the MS Spellcheck files?

Thank you for your help
