    Default What is wrong with my words?

    Whenever I typed anything in Microsoft Words and Outlook, the annoying spell & grammer check always without fail pop-up for "unrecognised" words like a person name, company or even chinese characters.

    The pop-up becomes so frequent now that I can't even type a single dame letter!

    Now that I recall, this unstoppable check appears almost on every Monday.

    I have tried to disable spell & grammer check using Tools > Options in Microsoft Words, but it just won't stop checking

    Is this a sign of virus (My laptop kenna virus attack few weeks ago and emails, but without content, were blasted to tom, dick and harry's email addresses found in my address book)

    or rather

    is this a weekly (Monday) spell & grammer check that I can disable somewhere?


    Please advise me soon before I show my laptop what my fists & biceps are made of...

    sounds bad....... show the laptop who's boss

    Try running virus scan programs to determine if there's bad macros in the Office program.

    ok ok, damn my dame...

    first, I will do a scan again. If all failed, reinstall windows and ms office applications again.

    hey, tomorrow is Tuesday, let's see if I can type a single word tomorrow...

    The errors would be highlighted by red underline. Why would it take longer to type?
