Hi,

I apologize that I have lost you from chat. I would suggest you try the following instructions in order to resolve the issue.
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Regedt32, and then click OK.
  2. Double-click to expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, expand the Software folder, and then expand the Microsoft folder.
  3. Double-click to expand the Shared Tools folder, and then click the SharedFilesDir value.
  4. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
  5. Type C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ in the Value Data box, and then click OK.
  6. Quit Registry Editor.

If the issue persists, I would suggest you download and install the third part spell checker.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If the issue resolved or the response was helpful, please click ACCEPT, so that I can get paid for my time and effort.

Thank you.
