Word 2007 crashes with Spellex installed

Problem

When you have Spellex installed, Word crashes regularly. Also when you type an incorrectly spelt word and press the space bar, word will fail to notice it is spelt wrong until after you run a spell check.

Solution

  1. Open a Command Prompt as an Administrator.
  2. Copy all the text in the box below:
    Regsvr32.exe /u "C:\Program Files\Spellex\Spellex for 2007 Microsoft Office\Spellex2k7.dll"
  3. Right click in the Command Prompt window and click Paste.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. A message should appear saying that the registering succeeded. Click OK.
  6. Close the Command Prompt.

If that does not work:

  1. Click the Start button. (Windows XP users should then click Run)
  2. Type regedit and press Enter.
  3. Click Continue or Allow if prompted.
  4. Navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Office/12.0/Word/
  5. Delete the Data folder.
  6. Close the Registry Editor.
