Microsoft Office cannot find proofing tools

Hi

I'm having a problem with microsoft office enterprise 2007.   In any of the apps (word/excel) when i try to spell check it doesn't work.  I get the error message "Cannot find proofing tools for English (United Kingdom).  if you have proofing tools, try installing or re-installing them."   The spell checker will only grammar check not spell check and the red wavy line under misspelled words does not appear.  I have tried re-installing and repairing using the setup disk but it is not working.  Can anyone help with this?

Changing the language to English (United States) doesn't work either.
