    As "leroy" mentioned Microsoft haven't created a Win 7 newsgroup.
    A Win 7 group does exist, "alt.windows7.general" but a few loonies need
    to be filtered out. If your ISP doesn't carry the group post back and I
    or others will nominate free news servers who carry the newsgroup.

    None on the Microsoft servers, which well, in another 2 mos. there will
    be none on the Microsoft servers. Why don't you try reading the 100s of
    other posts on the this subject? Oh wait, maybe the new MS forums would
    be perfect for you, none of them read either and posts the same question
    100 times even tho its been answered 100s of times before sometimes
    within the last 30 min.

    Try alt.windows7.general, which will NOT be found on this server. Try
    aioe.org or eternal-september.org

    Unfortunately alt.windows7.general is infested by the same w*nkers who made,
    imo, MS decide to vacate newsgroups.

    Nah, they had little to do with MS vacating newsgroups. It has to do
    with the fact most of their users don't understand the concept of
    newsgroups and could never find them.
