    Word 10 lock up with spell check

    I'm using Word 10, Windows 7. Suddenly, Word has started locking up when using spell check.

    It used to work fine so I can't figure this one.

    Suggestions?

    Ian,

    I don't know what is causing the problem but here are a couple of things you can try to fix it.

    1. Did you recently apply any Office 2010 updates?, if so you might try using a restore point to roll them back.
    2. Try runing the System File Checker to check for corrupt system files.
    3. Try a Reinstall of Office 2010.
    4. Of course this probablly should be #1 but run a full malware scan with at least two scanners. If you don't already have it get Malwarebytes Free for a second option.

    Thanks.

    What about deleting Normal.dot or Normal.dotx?

    Ian,

    You could give that a try but I don't think the problem lies there.

    Is this Word 10 or 2010 (v.14)?

    Officially, Word 10 (Office XP) is not compatible with any version of Windows 7. And people who have tried it have definitely encountered problems.
