    I just installed Word 2008 and misspelled words are not being caught and underlined. Why is this?

    When in Word: Select Preferences from the "Word" drop down menu, select Spelling and Grammar, place a check mark in the box that says "Check Spelling as you type" and likewise check off the box that says "Always suggest corrections".

    Regards.

    The Spelling and Grammar option is greyed out/disabled.

    I've done a Google search and it's suggested I check English as the language so I did that and still nothing.
