I couldn't come up with any thing specific to your problem but these quotes from the OE help file maybe of somehelp.

"When you find a newsgroup you like, you can "subscribe" to it so that it is displayed in your Outlook Express Folders list. Subscribing provides easy access to your favorite newsgroups, eliminating the need to scroll through the long list on the server each time you want to visit a favorite newsgroup."

"To cancel your subscription to a newsgroup, click the Newsgroups button, click the Subscribed tab, select the group you want, and then click the Unsubscribe button. You can also right-click the newsgroup in your Folders list and then click Unsubscribe."

"Note: If you double-click a newsgroup name, you get an automatic subscription to that group."

hi and *Welcome*.. yes this is a fantastic...arena to get/provide help with just about ANYthing pc related !! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

in OEX- click "Tools".. "Options".. and then on the GERNERAL TAB, UNcheck where it says "Notify if there are any new newsgroups".

also under "Tools", click Newsgroups, unsubscribe any that you no longer want.
