Spellcheck not working?

I can not check the spelling on my emails inside the outlook express. As I compose an email, and then click TOOLS, the word SPELLING is present, but is not bold like the other options in tools. I can not check spelling. Does this have something to do with windows ME or do I need to download some kind of dictionary add on or patch?

I am running Windows ME and IE6.

Goto Add/remove programs, select IE6 and click uninstall.
In the menu, select the "repair" option. Let it go through the paces. If you are still unable to spell check, uninstall and reinstall IE6 completely.

Thanks! Last night I installed MS Works and it works fine now. I guess, prior to installing MS works, I did not have a dictionary installed for the Outlook Express to reference.
