Hi,

I'm running XP Pro and on a few occasions now I have accidentally saved or 'Add to Dictionary' misspelled words. I've done this in Word 97 and in forums through my browser when typing in text messages.

Can anyone tell me how to remove or UNDO specific words that have been accidentally added to the system English dictionary, or what it would take to replace the dictionary with a fresh one?


Thanks.

You can search for custom.dic (or *.dic) and open it / them with Notepad, or:

I also have one in Microsoft\Proof, hence my suggestion to search for all.
