The words “Friendster,” “Klum,” “Nazr,” “Obama,” and “Racicot” are not recognized when you check the spelling in Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008

In Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008, when you check the spelling of English language text in an application that uses the English dictionary, all the following words cannot be recognized and are flagged as being misspelled:

  • Friendster
  • Klum
  • Nazr
  • Obama
  • Racicot

One example of an application that uses the English dictionary is Windows Mail.

Consider the following example scenario:

  • You compose an e-mail message in Windows Mail.
  • In the Options dialog box, on the Spelling tab, under Language, you select English.
  • You type a word that appears in the previous list.

In this scenario, this word is flagged as being misspelled.

Note: This issue also occurs if the application uses the German dictionary.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
