View Full Version : One or more files are write protected...

When I go to install Spell Check for O.E. 2.1, I get a message saying that "One or more files are write protected. Do you want to overwrite them anyway?" Is it OK to say Yes and go ahead with the installation?

Could you please clarify what programs you are using. :)

O.E 2.1 - what is this? Outlook Express?
Where did you get the Spell Check from?

The more details you give, the easier it is for us to help you. :)

I downloaded the "Spellchecker for Outloook Express 2.1" from majorgeeks.com.
I want a spellchecker for Outlook Express because I haven't got Word or MS Office. If this programme isn't a good one, can you suggest another free spellchecking programme?

I have no idea whether this program is any good or not as I have never tried any of these spelling assistants but it may pay to err on the side of caution.

My suggestion would be to try another of the spelling programs available at MajorGeeks instead. Have a look at FreeSpell (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4165) and perhaps give that one a try.

Thanks for your help guys - I'll have a look at Freespell, instead. I just feel a bit uneasy about the other one
