Turn it off for the controls that you don't want it on:
In the Properties sheet for textboxes, comboboxes etc, under the "Other" tab is a 
setting "AllowAutocorrect"

To turn it off for all controls in the application:
  Run a loop through every control on form and if it's a textbox or combobox set the 
control's AllowAutoCorrect property to false
