    Spell Check problems in OE (OE 6)

    A friend is having problems with OE spell check. Everytime she clicks on CHECK SPELLING - a window comes up entitled WINDOWS INSTALLER with a message of "preparing to install" and then it just sits there. If she clicks on cancel, the window comes up again and again. What would it be trying to install?

    Outlook Express uses the spell checking engine of Microsoft Office (or Microsoft Works). Did your friend recently remove Office or install a different version of Office?

    If s/he doesn't have Office: there are a lot of good third-party spell-checkers for OE, found through Google.
