What an adventure this computing is. This is like being a young parent trying
to teach the first child manners and to behave while making mistakes &
learnng as you go. I clicked a hyper link in a reply to my post "Asking a new
question" posted on 3/27/05. The link is titled "Windows XP Newsgroups". Now
there are three new folders in the Outlook Express folder menu. (1)
msnews.microsolft.com w/ a subfolder (2) microsoft.public.windowsxp.general
(3) news.quixnet.net. #3 is for my ISP. All because I want to make a new
post on this forum w/o having to hold control down when clicking "new
question" and allowing a pop up cookie being installed. How can I clean up
this mess I caused? I still have to hold control to make a new question. Can
anyone help me? Thank you. XYZ

Hi,
You really should learn to read newsgroups through Outlook Express. It's
much more efficient and enjoyable than the web interface.

See these links for help. That link you clicked on got you started. It will
be well worth the investment of time.

Thanks all for your help. This is a much easier way to use this forum. The
challenge with the pop up was being caused by the pop up blocker was
activated in the Google toolbar so I turned it off as my firewall handles
that also. Thannk all of you once again. XYZ

What you've done, is set up your Outlook Express to read Newsgroups!

As you wish; The web browser is completely separate from Outlook Express and
the two don't affect each other that way. In case it's new to you, it might
take several minutes to download all the messages for most groups you
subscribe to, but you only have to do that one time. Spamcop newsgroup is
much faster though, since there are few threads & groups. Unless you're on
digital lines; those go pretty fast.
