I have googled it and tried all the solutions, other than a reinstall, and nothing seems to work.

When I do spell check it says all is good, but I can see misspelled words. I tried the registry fix and also made sure all required items were check off. I have also made sure it was updated.

any suggestions :)

Try re-installing the English dictionary and see if that fixes it. If not...

Click the Microsoft Office Button, close it, and see if spell check begins to work. There's a slight bug with spell check and the Microsoft Office Button, you need to click it once for it to start working. Note that this only applies to new installations and it will only happen once.

If that doesn't work then, if no custom spell checker have been installed on the computer, exit Word, and then backup and delete the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\SharedTools\ProofingTools\1.0\Override\en-US

The key will be rebuilt the next time you start Word.

I've noticed something similar. Today I was helping my sister write something, and I could see misspelled words, and saw the little book with a check mark on the bottom, I clicked the book and suddenly the spell checker started working.

Hmm...
