I just bought Win XP Home Edtion and find it doesn't have a spell checker. Does anyone know of a free spell checker I can get?

You may be thinking of Office XP that contains a spell check in Words, Excel, etc. but the ones that were offered to you work fine.

AbiWord is a free word processor that has spell checking built in. I'm guessing thats what your talking about wanting, a word processor. And if you can't afford Microsoft Office, this is a nice alternative.

Howdy Mobo...

you need to have one of the MS office products...Word, Works etc.... installed for the spellchecker to be active

there was a link to get just the files needed to activate it but I'm not sure I could ever find it

edit ...I think this is it...no Office product required... http://mywebpages.comcast.net/joeyr76/pc/oespell.html
