Cannot reset News Group List

Now that PN has removed some Usenet Groups, I want to reset my list.
The process never seems to finish (using Outlook Express), It's as if the throttle on the downlowd is being shut off.
Any ideas?

Cannot reset News Group List

Hi Jerry,

I've just tried from this end and it appears to be working fine.

Have you tried using a different news client like Thunderbird (http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/) to ensure that the problem isn't with Outlokk Express?

Not tried another client.
OE start off fine at full speed then after a few minutes stops downloading from internet, sits there apparently still working but nothing is being received.

I tried another user account in OE, created a news account and downloaded group list OK.
So I assume I will need to unsubscribe from my current groups, then reset list, then subscribe again?

Yep, that should be perfectly fine. Seems that for some reason, the account you had set up became corrupted.
