Is there any way of using the newsgroups with software that does not need to update windows system files?

Although I don't use grabit myself, there should be a place for you to enter your news server address (sometimes called nntp.. or is it nttp.. address) during the installation process.. or the first time you run the program. Put your earthlink news server address in and then it should load up the newsgroups you have access to. Once you get going, you should be able to download a game in about 30 to 90 miniutes.

This was a great "tutorial" thanks for everyones input. I just got grabit, but I am having problems. Any group I go to, there is never any yellow dots! I have turned all the dots on to show up, yellow, blue, red, even the ones with the checks and x's through them, but I only ever get blue or red.
I cannot find any binaries on my list. Is it my news server? I am sure there must be some legal downloads that would show up in some group.
I have tried several different groups, dreamcast, then some news and programming groups, but never a yellow dot
Is it a filter of some sort I have turned on, or my server? I have just moved to Belgium from the States and I have telenet (newsserver being
Thanks in advance for the help.


BTW I have the new version of grabit 1.4.1 Beta (could this be the issue?)
