Windows XP General Newsgroup freezing

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

Hi
I am posting here because as the subject tells you, over the past 15 minutes
every time I try to open messages in the General Newsgroup, after the first
or second message is opened, the page freezes and I have to use Device
Manager to close the website and start again. Clearly this is not happening
on XP Basics or I wouldn't be posting this. Can some kind person tell me what
might be causing this problem?

    The general newsgroup tends to be one of those that receives a lot of posts,
    so you might want to compact it.
    First, to do this, from where you have all your newsgroups, inboxes, etc,
    click on all of the - ( minus signs) until the only thing showing is Outlook
    Express, then from the file menu click Off Line. Then, from the file menu
    click on folders and select compact all folders.
    That should do it for you.

    Hi Neil,

    The web interface continues to cause issues, try using a newsreader instead:
