Spell check in use error Office 2k

By ksearch ·
After upgrading to office 2k sp1 from office 97, 2 out of 30 users are experiencing a bizzare problem. They recieve "spell check in use" errors in word. The spell checker isn't in use, and even if every other application is closed, they still get the error. It is only happening on 2 out of 30 machines that were upgraded. Any thoughts?

Try troubleshooting by deleteing all the temp files created by Word. They start with a tilde (~). You can delete ~*.*
Also rename/delete Normal.dot.

I removed the temp files, and renamed normal.dot Still having the problem. Open word, wait 10 seconds and a dialog box appears "spelling checker is in use"

Tried office repair. Reran it again just now for good measure. Still no good. Sorry. Thanks for trying.

Remove automatic background spell check in word options.
