Office 2007 Breaks Outlook Express Spell Check

Heh ... Go to use OE for posting to some newsgroups, and my spell check is going nuts over my English spelling!

Go into OE's setup and low and behold:

I'm now French!!! My wife may be, but I am on the low end of the learning curve for the language at the moment. :)

Anyway, off to Microsoft's KB 932974: You no longer have spell checking capabilities in some languages in Outlook Express 6.0 after you install the 2007 Microsoft Office system

Um, it is permanently broken. :(

Off to the communities site? Nah. Google'd it and came up with: TechNet Forum's OE Spell Check discussion.

That in turn lead me to this specific program: Spell Checker for OE.

Install and voila:

I now have a working spell checker!
