    This is another one of those stupid "helpful" things that Valve have added. Seems when you tick the spectator chat it adds the game chat channel to your chat window in the client. So you have to press the up arrow icon (top left) to get out of the game you're watching then find the "Ingame chat" chat box, click on it and then some icons will appear. One of them is an "X". Click this to close the chat window. Press the down arrow in the top left to get back into the game. Chat should now be turned off again.
