I tried the iespell checker. It did not work. Gave me some kind of error message . I also discovered that it had downloaded a trojan / hijacker with it called My Start and Incredibar and took over IE9 and Firefox 17.
I downloaded this from the Cnet site as I have trusted them for years.
Not happy at all with Cnet for sure.

I uninstalled the checker and Incredibar.
The Incredibar remained and so did the My Start.
I typed into the address bar "how do I get rid of Incredibar". It showed this in a link to the Mozilla site.
I went to the Mozilla site and there was a very detailed explanation, step by step, of how to get rid of it.

I decided to try it a second time and use a different site to download from. I did this and it did not download the Incredibar or My Start stuff.

The spell checker still did not work.
I switched the IE9 32 bit version and it works. The 64 bit version will not work, at least on my machines ( 2 separate computers running Windows 7 64 bit ).

Here is a link to the steps to get rid of Incredibar and My Start in Firefox and IE.

I make too many typing errors for that. I had a stroke about 10 years ago and my left hand is a tiny bit faster than my right and it causes the letters to get in the wrong place quite often.
Without it sometimes I have to edit my posts 2 or 3 times.

Try using a Frankiln Spelling Ace. Safer than downloading.

Back in the BBS days we would type in word or WordPerfect and spell check them first. Then you can copy and paste.

IE Spell is the one listed / shown when you click the ABC right above your post on this site.
It works just fine with IE9 using the 32 bit version.

If you use FireFox you can check a box and it checks the spelling as you type.
