My spellcheck no longer works. I have tried Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids > No Available language modules listed.
Where do I go now?

Close OpenOffice and the Quickstarter. Open File Explorer. Copy and paste %appdata%\OpenOffice\4 in the File Explorer Address Bar and press Enter. Delete or Rename the "user" folder. Start OpenOffice.

This cures most spellcheck problems
