I don't know -- this works for me.
These are the most obnoxious and among the most useless error messages in  
Mathematica. I even disable them for novice student users. I wish WRI would  
just take them out, or at least leave them off by default.

I have occasionally had problems with messages I turned off which came "back to  
life". On one occasion I tracked the problem down to a standard package which  
(believe it or not) turned on an error message without returning it to its  
original state. (gasp!) However I am not aware of any packages that turn on  
General::spell and General::spell1.
