Did you have IE7Pro add-on on your computer as that has a spell check with it.

"ieSpell is free for personal use only. All other use requires a commercial license".

Recommended; I have used it for years.

There are loads to choose from on Google,But a lot of bad sites.
Just type Free spell check for vista in the box and see if you can find it.
Always best to have WOT or McAfee Site Advisor downloaded when browsing for anything.

Firefox has its own spell checker (Tools>Advanced tab>General tab) and I link it to the British English Dictionary extension, but the usual route for many is via a word processor's spell checker (for example Word).

The FF extension can be found at:
