A while back, I upgraded from IE -8 to Internet Explorer 10.

Now, when I go to what I believe is called the Goggle bar and click on the spell-check icon, I get a message which says something to the effect that my computer is unable to connect to the Google spell check servers.

It tells me to check my internet connection and try again.

Well, I'm connected to the Internet, so what am supposed to do to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Jay, you're a genius; why would you need spell-check?

It may help to spell "Goggle" as well.

When you upgraded to 10 you stepped into a software pile that was released before they had all the kinks ironed out. There are a myriad of problems associated with the new program. You can research some issues via blogs that offer solutions to certain glitches.

The queer thing is that for a couple of weeks after I upgraded, everything worked AOK, including spellcheck.

At what point did Topix ad some kind of damned software that apparently completes my words for me, often incorrectly?

What the hell is that called? It sucks.

"Ad?" I know; it's your nerves. Eyes too?
