Disable Local AutoCorrect

Sometimes Global AutoCorrect will not operate correctly.
This can be words not correcting, being replaced with different letters/words or adding QZ to the end of the word (amongst other things)
This can be because a different auto correct facility might be interfering with Global AutoCorrect.
