Can't use spell check in OE6

  lugonn 10:08 08 Feb 2004


I'm running windows XP and using office 97, whenever I try to use spell check in outlook express 6 it comes up 'an error occurred while the spelling was being checked'. The spell checker worked when I first bought this computer and set everything up but at some point (I can't remember when) it just stopped. Recently I had to reinstall everything when I changed back to FAT32 but spell checker still will not work in OE6, I am wondering if it has something to do with all the patches ?

As an off topic PS, since reinstalling I've noticed that my cursor will suddenly jump to a different part of the screen whilst typing (both in IE6 and word'97) and that sometimes in IE6 a link will randomly activate taking me elsewhere.

Thanks for any help you can give.
