    Disable Spell Check (Office 2010)

    Okay, so I know how to do this for Office 2003 (changing permissions on C:\Program Files\Shared\Microsoft Shared\Proof\msspell3.dll) however I may now need to do this on 2010 too. Does anyone know how?

    Sorry, I should have said that (ideally) the feature would only be disabled for certain users, not all users.

    Has anyone ever found a decent solution for this?

    I'm making some headway on this - from another post on here, I've managed to grey out all the toolbar options, and I've identified a DLL file which, if overwritten with an empty file, stops the wiggly red line from appearing; denying access to that same file causes Word to crash, though. So, if someone were wizard enough with scripts to be able to write a script which put a duff copy of that file down at logon and then restored a decent one at logoff, we'd be there. Unfortunately I'm not that good - anyone else fancy a shot?

    Has anyone found a way to disable the Office 2010 spell checker? This is getting quite pressing now, as I've recently found out that some Controlled Assessment is happening next week, by which time this must be turned off, so I'd be grateful for anything which anyone can offer.
