    We use word 2000 and word xp to do testing. We don't want the people being tested to have any way of using or turning on the spelling or grammer features. Is it possible to completly remove these features from word?

    Perhaps try Safe Mode. It does have other limitations, so you will need to check and see if they are items that you need for testing. You can create a shortcut to winword.exe /safemode and see if this is what you are looking for.

    Per MS:

    User-initiated safe mode
    You can open any Office or Office family program in Office Safe Mode by pressing CTRL while you start the program or by using the /safe option when you start the program from the command line.

    The following restrictions apply when you open a program in user-initiated Office Safe Mode. (Some items listed below do not apply to all Office or Office family programs.)

    No templates can be saved.
    In Microsoft FrontPage, the last used Web site is not opened.
    The Office Assistant is not automatically displayed.
    Toolbar or command bar customizations are not loaded and customizations cannot be saved.
    The AutoCorrect list is not loaded and changes are not saved.
    Recovered documents are not automatically opened.
    Smart tags are not loaded and new tags cannot be saved.
    All command line options are ignored except "/a" and "/n".
    Files cannot be saved to the Alternate Startup Directory.
    Preferences cannot be saved.
    Additional features and programs will not automatically load.
    Documents with restricted permission cannot be created or opened.


    Hope this helps,

    Have you tried: Tools/Options and under the "Spelling & Grammer" tab unchecking all the boxes?

    I believe he is looking for a way to completely disable it. Someone who knows, could always go in and recheck those options....and in a test scenario you want to be able to block all access to it.
