Windows 8 Developer Preview: Disable spell checker
most of you who tried the Window 8 Developer preview might have noticed that Internet Explorer 10 has now a spell checker which is basically a good thing. Unfortunately there is no way to disable it in the options (hopefully only for the developer preview). As it messes up my blog software turning write things wrong and slowing some web pages to actually miss keystrokes I was searching for a way to disable it. As it took some time I reblog the information I found here . Just kill the MSSpellCheckingFacility process.
But killing the process seems not enough. Each time I start an application with a text field the process spins up again. Because of that I rename the file to MsSpellCheckingFacility.exe.bak. To be able to do that you need to take ownership of the file first and grant you full control:
