Hello -


I'm suddenly unable to perform spellcheck. I receive the error below:


"Cannot find the proofing tools for English (U.S.). Check your Office Language Preferences to see if the required proofing tools are installed."


Evidently, they are NOT. I have never removed them and cannot imagine why they would suddenly disappear. Seems I can only download 2013 and newer? I'm not certain what the proper fix is, if there is one.


Any guidance would be appreciated!


System info:

Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010
Windows 7
