I have set my son up with a limited account in XP. In word there is no option to check spelling (pressing the check spelling button on the toolbar doesn't work and in options the spelling tab is greyed out).

I have been to the Microsoft knowledgebase but can only find a reference to a similar problem in Word 97 (Article 257643) - is the solution for word 2000 the same?

I can't try it for you, as I can't reproduce the fault, but all the fix is doing is giving your son 'permission' to access the specific MS Word spellcheck tools.

I am confident that it would also work with Word2000, if the lack of access is the cause of his inability to perform a spellcheck (a very likely cause).

I agree with jazzypop; it can't do any harm to try. Make a backup of the registry to start with (File/Export) and save to the desktop.

If things go pear shaped you can double-click that file to restore the registry.
