We need a reliable spell check application for Internet Explorer (running IE6, 7 & 8) for our corporation. Currently other browsers are not part of our standard PC build, nor does security and networking wish to add one at this time.

Could you please recommend a integral spell check option for IE we could use across our enterprise. It must support localization.

Thank you.

It's funny when somebody uses IE6, but does not want to install any other browser for SECURITY reasons :). np. Firefox can be run as portable app, so there is no need to install it. –  user16526 Sep 23 '09 at 13:06
We all have rules to follow, if we agree with them or not. –  Brettski Sep 24 '09 at 14:07

The Google Toolbar provides a bunch of features, including spellchecking and works with IE6 and 7 (I have not tested it on 8). Google does have an Enterprise version of the toolbar and also has a google group on using and setting it up.

The addon IE7Pro has an integrated spell checker as well as a bunch of other features. One caveat is that it does not play well with IE 8

Perhaps you can use GPO to push out IESpell to your workstations?
