I am probably looking right past it but... after a good while googling, scouring microsoft tech net and searching through every conceivable option in the Word GPO I just cannot find where to turn off "check spelling as you type". I have turned off most of the other spell checking elements but that one still eludes me so I am still getting the red squigly underline.
Please could somebody point me in the right direction?
I have already disabled "Check grammar with spelling" and i have trawled through a lot of microsoft documentation regarding the policy settings for office but unlike, powerpoint, one note, publisher and outlook it seems Word does not have a "check spelling as you type" option like the they do. I suppose I could set start background checker to a mahoosive number but I would have much preffered a definate "off" option...
A quick read of the Policy shows that spell checking delay only effects terminal server sessions, so I still have no way of disabling spell checker!?
might be a long shot but have you looked at Autocorrect options that is in Word Options? just untick all of them if you haven't and will probably solve the issue. apologies if you have checked this.
ahh i see. i didnt realise you was doing it over multiple's.
i think our Microsoft account manager is in later today so i will see if he can get me an answer for you
spoke with him and he reckons the only real way would be to do it once and image it then roll it out. failing that a customised script i would suppose.
Not the greatest answer in the world but it was worth a try
i hope it goes some way to helping at least
Okay, I've got it folks - I've managed to disable the spell checker in Office 2010!!
Go to disable proofing, spell checker, using GPO., follow Rex Zhang's instructions and then scroll down a bit for my comment and add the registry keys.
Enjay, you're a star! It won't work without the reg edits you've added.

The Control Identifiers need to be added as numbers one per line, not separated by commas as the GPO help says. Like this:-
This took some doing. MS must *really* not want admins to disable the proofing.

I've just found that this isn't as fool-proof as we had hoped. Even with all these changes, users can still Alt+Click a word to open the thesaurus (looks like all we've done is disabled the toolbar button, not the thesaurus itself) and also right-click | synonyms.
Anyone know of a way to prevent these?
