    angry Spell Check problems with Word 2007 under Windows 7

    Hi there,

    I have a strange problem with the spell check feature of Word 2007 under Win7.

    The spell check can pick up all the misspelled words. In this sense, it works fine. However, when I try to replace a misspelled word with the suggested one by using the "Change" or "Change all" feature, MS Word would close and I would get a message like this: "Microsoft Office Word has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." This problem won't occur in the safe mode.

    I have tried all the possible solutions to no avail.

    Can anybody help me out?

    Thanks!
    Sherwin

    You need to activate the proofing in Word 2007. It night have gone turned off. You can activate it by clicking on the Microsoft's start button on word 2007. Select the word options and click on proofing. This will get activated and thus you can then make the things possible.

    Thanks a lot! I have already done that, but the problem persists. Again, the Spell Checker can check misspelling, but just can't make changes--I have to make changes manually.

    It is the problem of the Registry. Just delete the entry from the Registry and you will be able to run word 2007 spell check. Just do the following.

    1. Click on the start
    2. And run the Run box
    3. Type regedit
    4. Registry window will appear. and look for the key as given
    5. KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word and delete it

    Then open Word once again and it will automatically create the key and subkeys.This will fix your problem.

    Thanks! I did that, but the problem is still there. Sometimes, the spell checker only allows me to change no more than one misspelled word; in other words, if there are two or more misspelled words in a document, I can only change one of them using the "Change" or "Change all" feature, and after that, the application will be closed.

    A bug might have affecting the Software. Remove the office pack and install a fresh new copy. This should sort out the problem hopefully.

    Use some registry cleaner software that will clear the registry and then reinstall the office. And also check for the virus before installing the Office.

    reinstalling appears to be a possible solution. Do a fresh install after 1. unistalling the currently installed program with Revo uninstallerthen 2. cleaning the registry with CCleaner
