Hi there
I'm looking for a preferably free utility that will spell check Wordpad documents on a Win95 Computer...Any suggestions?
Thanks

I had a look for one a while ago for someone, but I didn't find one.

I ended up moving them to Abiword (www.abisource.org) which made a good (free) replacement.

It can open/save Word[pad] files, has a spell checker and runs quite well on old computers (eg 486dx-50 vintage).

Thanks b m
Went there, but the file download link seems to be dead...I've tried downloading a few other potentials, but haven't been able to get them to run.
Oh well, the daughter'll have to thumb the old paperback dictionary!
Cheers

There is a program called Notetab that comes in various flavours, one of which has a spell checker. It's more sophisticated than Wordpad and might be a bit too heavy for you but have a look anyway.
