Please click HERE to download and install Firefox Browser. This is a great browser which many users and I use daily. Please install and use it. Log into your Hotmail. See if you can use the Spell Check function.

John,

I was asking you to test with Firefox. Was there a problem with it?

If you do not want to test with that, we can do a System Restore on your computer.
