Spell Check Not Working in WL 2011

I am unable to get spell check to work in WLM 2011. Have tried all fixes I've found in this forum with no luck. Am new to Windows 7 but not with a computer. Am at wits end.

And they were?

Have you un-installed and re-installed?

Hi elaxton and welcome to Seven Forums. I just wanted to throw this in because I thought the same thing the first time I used spell check in WLM 2011. With all due respect, are you positive it's not working. When spell check detects a misspelling it now just puts a very tiny red line under the word. I had one heck of a time when I first used it, I sat there and thought, what's going on here why isn't it working. If you feel insulted I apologize.

Zigzag thanks so much for your answer, was hesitant to uninstall and reinstall until I could find out if I would lose the WLM foloders and files, will definitely follow your suggestion if the next answer doesn't work. Much appreciated!

alfred101, no red lines under my misspellings, did check all four choices under the Spelling tab and now I have the red lines. Thank you, never would I be insulted and appreciate your answer, got me to thinking.

IE 9 and Spell Check
Can anyone please explain to me why IE9 does not have a native spell-check capability? All other browsers seem to have it. Is there a technical reason that prevents IE from having this? Has MS ever explained why spell-check is not included as a feature of IE (especially in 9 Beta and RC)? Thanks
