Spellcheck on Microsoft Office 2007

  ds7183 20:00 04 Sep 2009

I have installed Office 2007 after having 2003 on for some years. In Word when I click on Spelling & Grammar a box comes up with Windows Installer Preparing to Install. It won't let me cancel it and it takes ages to disappear and the spellcheck doesn't happen. If I change the language to English US instead of UK it is ok. Can anyone help please as I didn't have this problem with 2003. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

There was a problem I had with Office 2007 Word and its spell-checker. click here
This is not exactly the same as your problem but it may be related.

Maybe clutching at straws, but in Google search this came up. It seems that there are a lot of problems making sure that Spellcheck for 2007 works correctly. click here
