I don't have problems with longer words. But I have the tendency of sometimes typing too fast and not pecking keys hard enough, so I sometimes use it as a fast way to catch my goofs.

Does your spell check work? I hate having things on my computer which doesn't work.

The same thing happened to me. My Goodle spell check stopped working a couple days ago. I'm getting the same pop up that the server can't connect.

Ty for the info. It means the problem is with the Google system and not a glitch in my toolbar.

I'm getting a different pop-up. I just checked and it's still giving me the 'cannot connect to Google spelling servers'. But your info does show Google is having problems and not my computer.

Google toolbar is also widely infected with a "redirect" virus...and its a pretty bad one.

It looks like google search but it aint....it overrides your antivirus program (shows you are running a scan but you AINT! It stops windows defender from updating PC virus protection /new updates also.

Its a real nasty one. I spent 70 dollars to get it removed from my PC.

So be careful if you delete/reinstall google toolbar as there are many fake ones out there that will trick you and infect you.

You seem to be doing all right without it.

According to Microsoft Community website,
Doh! If you're referring to the Spell Check button on the Google Toolbar, it's not support [it doesn't work] anymore.



In fact, Google discontinued it in the current toolbar version. See http://support.google.com/toolbar/...



But it works great in Microsoft Word .
Very strange .

Hi.

Yes, the problem was with the Google spell check. But it's working now. I sent an e-mail to Google. It was a glitch where the link was broken between the tool bar and their dictionary/spell check servers. They fixed it. They were very quick about repairing it.
