Spell Check in Word 2003

  Pan Man 16:03 16 Sep 2005

I've just purchased laptop from Dabs which came with a preinstalled trial copy of Microsoft Office on usable for 60 days. I didn't want to use this as I have my own copy of M.S Office 2003 Pro which I installed after uninstalling the trial version. Everything works now except the spell checker which said it couln't find the welse dictionary everytime I ran it. I downloaded the welsh dictionary and installed it and now the spell checker runs but checks in welsh. There is the option to change it to English UK but when I do this it will not remain the default and changed back to welse after checking each word or when I relaunch Word. Before I installed the welse dictionary I was unable to even get to change the dictionarys. I have tried everything to keep English as the default with no use. Works 8 was also preinstalled on the machine and the spell check in this and in outlook express is english. Where do I have to point Word to check in English please before I loose any more hair.

Sorted it. It was the preinstalled trial version of Microsoft Office that was causing the problem. Obviously when I unistalled it it took something with it. I formatted my Hard Drive and reinstalled XP without the Office Trial. My copy of Officed went on OK then.
