Lately the spell check and other features such as underline on this site have not been working for me. Is anyone else having this problem? I recently down loaded some Windows updates, and installed a new anti-virus program, and was wondering if the problem was caused by one of those actions.

Interesting... nothing has changed on our side, but it may be that settings in your browser have changed in some way that are not working with our site. I'd be very interested in hearing from others that are also having problems. Please let me know the web browser and version you are running, as well as your operating system.

Thanks!

Josh,

Sorry for the delay in answering you. My internet browser would not start up. The problem was with some of the Internet Explorer settings that changed when I downloaded the updates, and has now been corrected.

Thanks,

deep woods

I have had the spell check come up with an odd site (PHP?) a few times but it then goes to the spell check program then or after I retry it.

Satan Jr.,

When I was having problems, nothing happened when I tried to do spell check. I've never had a problem like you have described.

Deepwoods,

It did not sound like it was the same situation from your description but with "modern technology" you can never be sure ... :wink:

It is not a big deal since it corrects itself but it does make you wonder who or what is behind the curtain ..... :shock:

Josh,

How a bout a spell check that knows what I wanted to type not what I typed? When I type "form" for "from" or "sue" for "use" it should "know" what I wanted to say ... right? :P

Speaking of behind the curtain....I just installed new anti-virus software, and have been rooting out adware or spyware that somehow got installed on my machine. Big brother is (or in my case, was :twisted: ) watching.
