My system runs on Windows Vista home edition, i downloaded Pluckit succesfully but it won't run on my system, the program doesn't find newsgroups from the server "news.quicknet.nl"Hope you have an answer to this problem, i used Pluckit before on a Win 98 machine without problems and like the program very much!!

Thanks, I was after software to automatically download webimages - I have since found Automator (part of my Mac OsX) can do this with ease.

Picture Patrol X 1.5.1 - surfs up. Limited to pictures only. Too bad! Newsgroups have much more content than simply images. However, I must add, this software is easy to set up and navigate. Simple and clean interface. Stable on MacOSX 10.5.2 as far as I could tell. Very good overall -

An excellent newsreader. Easy installation and easy to use. Great features with lots of options for customization.

Great to use, heavy on the hard drive. Omea is great if you only have a few newsgroups and don't need to keep older posts. It grinds to a complete halt if you have 15 newsgroups with 20, 000 posts. It spends all of it's time reindexing the database which hit's the hard drive hard. Indexing should be controllable.

Poor Custumer service I have not been able to even open the product be cause it will not exept the actavation key that was sent me, and when i sent the company an email it was ignored, thank you

Beats OE and Xana hands down I found this to be pretty intuitive. I have managed to set it up without ever going to the help files! Have yet to work out how to get it to launch web page links from a newsgroup in it's own window and a spell checker would be nice.

Poor after sales support Nice program, but no after sales support that I could get in contact with at all. Every effort to contact them internationally is ignored.
