    I'm looking for a Yahoo IM spell check program, either free or low fee. The ones I've sen all are only for XP and lower. I am using Vista.
    Anyone have one they use or have seen?

    Thanks!

    For IM stuff (MSN in my case) I use pidgin . It's free, has a spell checker and doesn't have any of the advertising baggage of the "real" applications. On the other hand, my kids say it isn't cool...

    Thanks for your response. I'm not able to change IM's as I have way too many contacts in Yahoo. I've got a spellchecker add-on for my work Yahoo IM, but I have XP there; at home I have Vista and that program doesn't work with Vista. So, I'm looking for an add-on specifically for Yahoo.

    Have you tried running the program in compatability mode?

    No, I haven't. Just trying to find one that is supposed to work with Vista first if I can.

    Have you tried the spell checker that come with the Google toolbar?
    If I remember right , ieSpell will work with Vista. Check out http://www.iespell.com/download.php

    Yes, Vista is NOT listed but I know I checked it out during Beta of Vista.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    At work I'm using this one. Works great, but haven't tried it on Vista yet.

    I also use IEspell, but it doesn't spell check Yahoo IM.
