Outlook Express spellchecker won't work

I have Windows XP which is uptodate and when I try and run the spellcheck in my Outlook Express email program I receive an error message which says "An error occurred while the spelling was being checked".

I've checked my options which seem OK and I've even changed them to automatically check the spelling before sending the email, but it just fails the spellchecker as encountering an error.

Any ideas? Help would be appreciated.

Do you have Microsoft Office installed? OE uses the Office spell checker.

Thanks Powerless the two links you posted look very promising. I'll check them out and see if they sort my XP Outlook Express.

VoG - I do have MS Office installed and the spellchecker works OK in that.
