    My XP came with a 60 day trial of Microsoft Office- Standard Student and Teacher. When the 60 days were up, I did not want to purchase it, so removed it from my computer.. Now I don't have spellcheck in Outlook Express 6.. It says to insert a cd which I don't have. Do I have to spend up to $130.00 to get Microsoft Office back on to my computer just to get the spellcheck back.. Please somebody help me.
    Thanks :confused:

    try this,
    insert your winxp cd rom
    start > run > and type

    EXPAND X:\I386\CSAPI3T1.DL_ C:\CSAPI3T1.DLL
    [where X is your CDROM drive letter]
    now this CSAPI3T1.DLL is in your C drive,
    move it to C:\programs\outlook express folder
    you have to restart after this.

    In your outlook express, go to tools> options > spelling >
    make sure to diselect always check spelling before sending
    or
    check the setting of your downloaded spell checker.


    if this does not help try to extract dll file from winxp cd. (follow instruction in post number 2)
