the lock icon is due to the dictionaty having been installed as a program component rather
than an extension. you can delete it through "add/remove programs" tool of your system by
choosing "custom" option.

the "languages" item of the "options" menu is not quite what you need. the list of available
language modules is under the "language settings/writing aids" section of the options. the
"edit..." button lets you choose a spellchecker and hyphenator for each distinct language.
