I am a 70 yr old man and not too smart. In some newsgrpous I often get a
response as follows. Can I do anything about this that is not to
complicated?

=ybegin part=1 total=6 line=128 size=3707966 name=Family Tree Maker

The example you posted is a compressed program file, not text. In the
example above, someone posted Family Tree Maker 2006, and the header
identifies this as part 23 of a multipart "thread".

The file was first compressed (hence the .rar extension), then was broken
into small segments (hence the "part 23"). These segments were then posted
to the newsgroup. If you are using a newsreader (such as Forte Agent 3.0),
you can then download and join the parts together, and then extract the
original file.

A couple of additional comments...one should always be cautious when
downloading files like this...they can and often do contain viruses,
spyware, keyloggers or trojans. Make sure you have a reputable Antivirus app
installed, and that it is kept updated. In addition, downloading files like
the one in your example is illegal, as the file is copyrighted and must be
purchased for personal use.

Thanks for the information. I was surprised by the legality comments, tho.
I have no interest in keeping it on my computer. I merely wanted to read it.

Best to ask someone in the particular newsgroup that you cannot read.

the files are encoded with a program called yenc
if you use outlook express for newsgroups, there are extra steps involved in
using yenc to decode attachments because outlook express doesn't natively
support it
i use xnews and it can decode yenc messages

Isn't that nasty thing scheduled for blindfolding and tying to a post?

And at the risk of upsetting the international community, but just for you

Dutch.. Niet is dat smerige ding dat voor het blindfolding en het binden
wordt

And since when does being 70 have any connection with being "not too smart"?
I'll bet you're smarter than many of us here, and wiser than most.

HI,
I hope you don't mind my butting in.
A question please.
How could you deduce the file is copyrighted?
Was it because, it was posted in encrypted form?
Regrds.

No. Family Tree Maker is a retail genealogy program. Many such programs
can be found on the newsgroups, but they are all illegal because the person
downloading them did not purchase them.
It is the same as DVD movies and music...just because they *can* be
downloaded does not make it right or legal.
