    I have gotten very confused. Nothing New. I have a new desktop computer with
    windows 7 and office 2007(Access,Excel,Etc). I am using Outlook for email and
    my web browser is Explorer.
    On my old machine I used to go to Newsgroups through through Outlook express
    but my dsl/ISP provider ATT blocked Newsgroups.So I have not been able to
    access newsgroups for some time.
    Now With my new machine I would like to access the Microsoft public
    newsgroups for ACCESS and EXCEL, ETC.
    Now I understand Microsoft has established forums instead of newsgroups and
    has provided a way to access newsgroups/forums via Explorer rather than
    Outlook.

    CAN anyone give an old man some simple steps to allow me to access the old
    Microsoft newsgroups (I would like to be able to ask questions in some of
    these newsgroups).

    Thank You,
    Greg

  2. And your Windows Update question would be...?

    MS dropped all of the Access newsgroups [1] on 01 June 2010. On 01 July,
    Windows Update newsgroup will bite the bullet, too!
